I just looked at the info for an upcoming international trip on United (US to EU). On the original receipt for the trip Nov.1st, it said the typical 1 free bag of 50 lbs or less with the 2nd bag at $100, also max of 50 pounds. Now when I view my itinerary in "My Trips", this is what I'm seeing:
1st bag 2nd bag Weight per bag
Thu., Nov. 1, 2018 Knoxville, TN, US (TYS) to Basel, CH (BSL) $0 $0 100.0 lbs (45 kgs)
Same for the return. Get the same results if I use their Baggage Calculator and plugging in my PNR and Last Name.
I know UA upped their baggage fees recently, but certainly hadn't heard anything about them doubling not only the number of free bags for this route but also doubling the weight. This has to be a mistake as I can't see the baggage handlers dealing with 100 pound bags or UA forgoing the $100 2nd bag fee.
Anyone else seeing this on their UA reservations?
