    Hello all

    I'm 1k member. I book a reward ticket (saver economy) for a friend who has no FF account. As a 1k member, I allow to check in 3 baggage. Does my friend allow to have 3 check in baggage too?

    Thank you

    Your friend does not get this free bag allowance on a United award ticket.

    If you booked a Continental award ticket on Continental-operated flights, your friend might get your free bag allowance. There is sometimes a quirk in the Continental award system applies the status of the person who books the award to the traveler.

    Hmmm... I booked a ticket for my 26 year old daughter. If they upgrade her, I'm going to tell her it was her birthday present. :D
