I haven't heard that if you bought your ticket beforehand that it doesn't apply- but that would be great-- I'll be giving them a call today!
Here's what the website says...
For each ticketed customer, US Airways will transport:
* 1 checked bag free of charge, and
* 1 bag as a carry-on
Additional checked baggage
A second checked bag will be assessed a $25* fee. The new fee applies to travel on or after May 5 for tickets purchased on or after February 26, 2008.
Under 50 pounds/23 kg
51 - 70 pounds/23-32 kg
71-100 pounds/32-45 kg
First checked bag
Third - ninth bag(s)
*Fees listed are in USD and will be charged in the local equivalent currency. Some destinations outside of the continental U.S. have additional limitations on checked baggage at specific times of the year.
The following passengers are exempt from the $25 second checked bag fee:
* All Dividend Miles Preferred members (Silver, Gold, Platinum and Chairmanâ€™s Preferred)
* Passengers traveling to and from Europe, or to and from Asia
* Confirmed First Class and Envoy passengers at time of check-in
* Star Alliance Silver and Gold status members
* Active military personnel in uniform with ID
* Unaccompanied minors
* Passengers checking personal assistive devices
If you're paying 10% of the adult fare for an infant to fly on a transatlantic flight, you are allowed:
* 1 checked bag with maximum total dimensions of 45 inches/114 cm and maximum weight of 50 pounds/23 kg
* 1 fully collapsible stroller or 1 child restraint device or car seat
You are allowed one carry-on bag and one personal item. Personal items include a purse, briefcase, laptop or diaper bag. Carry-on baggage must be stowed in carry-on compartments of the aircraft, under a seat, or in an overhead compartment.

Regardless of purchase date, any travel on or after May 5th is aubject to the new rates. $25 for the 2nd bag and $100 per bag therafter. AND, each piece still has to weigh less than 50 lbs!
AND THE FEE IS CHARGED EACH WAY!!!!
