Checked baggage at United Airlines

Bagaż rejestrowany w United Airlines ściśle związany jest z trasą lotu. W najtańszej, ekonomicznej klasie, na trasach wewnątrz USA, pasażerowie muszą dopłacać już za pierwszą sztukę bagażu rejestrowanego. Na pozostałych trasach pierwsza sztuka bagażu jest bezpłatna, dopłaca się dopiero za drugą sztukę bagażu. Pasażerowie wyższych klas cenę dwóch walizek mają wliczoną w cenę biletu. Na niektórych trasach pasażerowie klasy ekonomicznej również mogą bezpłatnie zabrać dwie sztuki bagażu rejestrowanego.
