United Airlines announced today that it is increasing its “second bag” fee from $70.00 to $100.00 on “selected” international flights. For now United’s international customers will continue to be able to check in their first bag free of charge. To jog everyone’s memory the fee 12 months ago was $50.00. Delta has already increased its charges and others are predicted to follow suit.
We all know that Air Canada will follow suit, their current rates for U.S. travel is $25.00 for first bag and $35.00 for second. International charges range from $70.00 – $100.00 depending on destination.
