United Airlines Promotes Annual Baggage Fee Plan

United Airlines has put a new twist on baggage fees with Premier Baggage, charging customers a flat price that allows them to check two standard bags at no additional cost every time they fly on a United or United Express operated flight in a year. Customers can purchase a subscription for an introductory price of $249, entitling them to check two standard bags on United and United Express operated flights domestically and internationally, where applicable, rather than paying to check bags each trip. The annual subscription also covers the standard checked baggage charge for up to eight companions traveling under the same confirmation number as the subscriber. Mileage Plus Premier members are exempt from first and second bag fees on standard bags. The purchase of a Premier Baggage subscription does not waive fees that would ordinarily be assessed for oversized and overweight bags, and does not cover the cost of checking bags beyond two standard bags.
