United Change Checked Baggage Fees
Monday, 3 Sep 2018
United has become the next major airline to increase its baggage fees in recent weeks. The changes will affect checked baggage fees specifically. It will now cost $30 to check a bag, which is an increase of $5. To check a second bag, passengers need to spend $40, which is up from $35.
United’s decision to increase checked baggage fees comes hot on the heels of three other airlines – JetBlue, Air Canada and West Jet – who have brought in similar price hikes.
United have upped their fees in a bid to recuperate costs incurred from rising jet fuel prices and it is expected that more airlines will also be forced to react in this way.
