Bag Check Discounts Over for United Continental
The $2 to $3 discount you used to get from United Continental if you paid for your luggage online, instead of at the ticket counter, is gone. The carrier has done away with the prepay option.
The change began for tickets that were sold since March 9.
The Chicago-based air carrier now charges $25 for the first bag, and $35 for the second, regardless of how or when you pay.
Delta Air Lines Inc., however, still offers a similar discount. Other carriers, like American Airlines, never offered the deal. Southwest Airlines still allows passengers to check two bags for free.
