Quoting Platinumfoota (Thread starter): UA will now charge $25 dollars per second bag to customers traveling on non refundable fares, refundable fares, government fares and Standard Award tickets in Economy class.
Well there you go, all US airlines will now charge their customers for the second baggage. My question is why they don't also charge their international flights on the same charges?
The only legacy airline if not mistaken that has not done it is CO, yet!!

Probably due to competition as the Asian and European carriers aren't doing it
If I understood Transpac right, non revs for United Airlines do NOT have to pay for baggage fees right? So we, as WN employees are different in the fact we would have to pay for any baggage fees non rev or paying passenger.

Actually, we do NOT pay the SECOND BAG FEE of $25 that UA implementing. However, the other fees still apply, for example, overweight, oversized, 3rd checked bag. Sorry for my confusion above, as you can see now, we both have the same fees associated with non-revenue travel.

Quoting Nkops (Reply 12):
Exempting your employees from bag charges... what a novel idea!!!
Why not? We non revs fly on space available bookings. Only on authorised company trips that require transport do we fly positive space booking. Why charge non-revs for checked luggage when there's a chance that we won't get on the flight. Often at US stations, we don't get our seat assignments until we're at the departure gate.
