United "extra" checked bag

Tue Aug 08, 2017 6:28 pm

So, buying a ticket for a job interview and the option to buy an "extra" checked bag.

Now, the question is: is this just pre-paying for the checked bag I would pay $2 more for at the airport? If so, why not just call it "Add a checked bag" or something similar?

It just seems like confusing writing.

They might word it this way because some travelers get the first checked bag free because of FF status or their credit card.

The most annoying version of this is Air New Zealand policy for Star Alliance gold travelers. They give you the SECOND bag free, but you must pay for the first!

I lost MP Silver this year and have already forgotten that I used to get a free bag.

It almost makes me reminiscent for 10+ yearly TATL trips. :cry:
