    FYI, from Expedia.com (thought was was particularly applicable to people on here!):

    New United Airlines baggage policy

    United’s new checked bag policy applies to tickets purchased on or after Feb. 4, 2008, for travel beginning on May 5, 2008.

    Customers who purchase nonrefundable domestic economy tickets may check one bag for free and a second bag for a $25 service fee. Oversized bags or those weighing more than 50 lbs. now cost $100 per bag. Items that require special handling also have new prices.

    This new checked bag policy also applies to travel beginning within the U.S. and to/from Canada, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and St. Thomas.

    For customers who have at least Premier status in Mileage Plus or Silver status with Star Alliance, there are no changes to the number of bags they can check for free.

    For international flights (except Canada), checking a second bag will continue to be free and the cost to check more bags or bags that are overweight or need special handling varies by destination.

    For more information, please visit united.com/baggage.

      Oh, wow. It looks like this is starting to become a trend. I hope AA doesn't catch on before July.
