Thank good I don't have to pay that.
It is good to see them focusing on this fee rather than the fees for the first/second bag. Better to be raising them now before their financial condition deteriorates due to the high fuel costs.
I would hope that not too many people are in a position to be paying this!
While I am not opposed to overweight bag fees on principle, I think that's a pretty excessive price hike. US must be pretty desperate to nearly double their overweight bag fees.
I wonder what the correlation is between upping this fee and the number of people who check overweight bags is...I guess I'm asking if this means a bunch of people routinely go overweight?
It's only a matter of time until a 17 pound bag is overweight. Sad.
So I now no longer have any incentive to fly US Airways when transporting stuff for my business.
US was less expensive than most for excess baggage international. They are now the same price as United.
So Now, I will just fly United and enjoy their better overall product!
Bye Bye US Airways!
I doubt that. To me it looks like there has been a big alignment of fees and allowances across the Atlantic, and I don't think anyone really wants to mess that up.
I don't know...I've been reading the "United Compensation" thread over in the United forum, and it sounds like no one is happy with the UA product, based on the things everyone over there is complaining about and getting compensation for!
That thread is not a good representation of United Airlines overall quality.
United does a good job most of the time, better than US Airways, based on my experience flying.
I recognize that that thread isn't representative of everyone's experience with UA. I wasn't trying to start a "this airline is better than that one" back and forth...it's just that I was just on that thread, and your post was a 180 degree change in vibe from those, so I thought it was funny and decided to comment!
