Airline (United) Baggage Question

I haven't flown United Airlines in a very long time but for an upcoming trip at the end of this month, I don't have a choice.  Help me understand their policy on baggage.  I generally avoid checking bags because when I travel alone, it just always seems like a hassle (read: I'm impatient and just want to get off the plane and go).  But in the universe where I check a bag, do I pay $25 up 50lbs regardless?

Re: Airline (United) Baggage Question

  • Looks like it, unless you are traveling with one of the 70 lb weight limit categories.  Remember, this charge is for both ends of your flight ~ departure in Maryland and return to Maryland, so you'll be paying $50 total. 

    Baggage fees have become the newest moneymaker!

  • Yes, ditto Jadey, you will have to pay $50 total. I don't mind paying it but it's so annoying when you're on airlines who charge b/c then every cheapskate crams their giant suitcases on the plane and it takes you forever to get out.

    Thanks!  This is what I was thinking but the wording (probably on purpose) is not easy to get through.  I should be able to get away with my small rolling suitcase and then my carry on as I've learned it's no longer a necessity to pack 10 outfits for a 5 day trip!  Plus, I'm staying with my brother and SIL so I don't have to pack little things like a blow dryer and a towel which helps.
