Between the combination of high gas prices and having to reroute some international flights to avoid the airspace of Russia and Ukraine, fees for travel have been working their way up. Airline prices are increasing. Uber is charging a fuel surcharge.
And now? United’s drawing a line in the sand and has hiked the fee for checked-in bags for some of their flights.
The Times of India reports that due to the longer routes required to circumvent certain airspace, United has increased some of the baggage charges for its flights to/from India. There are a few exceptions, but passengers will expect to pay $200 for their second checked bag (previously $100) and $300 for their third (or more) checked bags, or for oversized checked bags (previously $200).
Passengers’ first checked bag is still free.
