My daughter and I have some domestic US travel coming up using frequent flier miles. Each of us has a routing where the first leg is in coach and the second leg is in first class. The first routing is on Continental and the first flight segment is fare class X (coach) and connecting to fair class I (first class). Coming back on Delta the fare class is N (coach) connecting to fare class R (first class). How do the baggage fees apply on each airline where there is a difference in service levels?
I know the Continental webpage states "The service fee will not apply to customers seated in First or BusinessFirst, OnePass Elite members, customers traveling on full-fare economy (Y) class tickets, or active military personnel." but for the first segment is coach or does the rule apply for any segment on the trip? What are the rules on Delta?
Thanks for your assistance.
