Effective for tickets purchased after 6/15, there is a $15 per bag charge for the FIRST checked bag. I just paid $75 to check 5 bags with 5 tickets last week and then coming back, paid $100 to check 5 bags plus one case of wine at $25 on AA. Just lovely.
I got an email from United (my point carrier) this morning. Evidently, they're following AA's lead on this. I thought fuel prices were coming down? Also read recently that some airline (can't remember which) is now charging for pillows and blanket "rental".
