So I am looking to fly Zurich-Washington DC to visit a friend. This involves a stop in Philadelphia. The US Airways site says flights to/from Europe have free checked luggage but domestic US charges $25. The US Airways site says they will check bags through to your final destination.
Does this mean I don't have to pay the checked baggage fee for PHL-DC?
I plan to then fly DC-Detroit, and Detroit-Zurich via Philadelphia.
If I understand correctly, I will only have to pay the $25 checked baggage fee on the DC-Detroit flight?? I was having a heart attack thinking I'd have to pay 3 x $25 and have to go around checking my bags in twice...
