    Title says it all. Beginning to plan for the changeover and losing status and benefits like lounge access that Centurion card gets me. One of the benefits of the CO Presidential Plus credit card is two free bags per passenger.

    Do Star Alliance Golds get any free baggage allowance on CO/UA?

    Thanks.

    Great - thanks for the link. Priority Pass gets me to the lounge and baggage is free. Good deal.

    United is a bit different, which makes me wonder whose policy they will keep when the programs are merged.

    Star Gold gets 3 free bags up to 70lbs each on UA compared to 2 bags at 50lbs each on CO.
    Star Silver gets 2 free up to 50bs each on UA compared to 1 bag at 50lbs on CO.
    UA baggage allowance also carries over to every person (up to 8 people, I think) on the same itinerary. Not sure what the CO policy is.

    EDIT:
    According to this page on the CO site, it appears CO does allow *G to check 3 bags up to 70lbs each.

    Actual as of last week both UA and CO have the same bag policy. all the US *A partners now only give silver 1 free 50lb bag. no more 2 free bags except for UA and CO elites on CO or UA metal.
