Unhappy United's new baggage weigth/size & fees

Checked baggage service charges
UNITEDíS revised some of our checked baggage policies for travel worldwide. For the latest checked baggage updates, please review all relevant baggage pages before you travel.
Updated: May 8, 2014


Carry-on baggage allowed overages on size & weight can be collected any point in the itinerary, including and not limited to a connecting flight.
United accepts the following items, per customer to be carried on the aircraft at no charge:
One carry-on bag no more than 45 linear inches or 114 linear centimeters (L + W + H) or 14 inches x 9 inches x 22 inches (23 x 35 x 56 cm)
One personal item (such as a shoulder or laptop bag), see below.

UNITEDíS NEW POLICY AS OF MAY 8, 2014 One carry-on bag no more than 45 linear inches. This is a 2.5 linear inches reduction is size!

Carry-on baggage
Each traveler can bring on board one carry-on bag plus one personal item free of charge. To ensure a smooth boarding experience, itís important to make sure that these items will fit into the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you.
Carry-on bag
The maximum dimensions for a carry-on bag are 9 inches x 14 inches x 22 inches (22 cm x 35 cm x 56 cm), including handles and wheels.


Personal item
The maximum dimensions for your personal item, such as a shoulder bag, backpack, laptop bag or other small item, are 9 inches x 10 inches x 17 inches (22 cm x 25 cm x 43 cm).

To determine if a bag will fit onboard, bag sizers will be available in the airport lobby. Once at the gate, any item in excess of the will be charged the following fees below.

Oversized baggage
Checked bags in excess of 62 linear inches* (158 linear cm) to 115 linear inches (292 linear cm)
Maximum size allowed may vary depending on cabin, status level, military status, itinerary and date of purchase.
*linear measurement = length + width + height
$200 per bag

Oversized baggage
Customers who travel with checked baggage exceeding 62 linear inches (158 cm) (total length + width + height) will be required to pay a service charge per bag or item, based on the itinerary. To determine service charges for oversized baggage for your trip, use our baggage calculator, and after your results are displayed, check the box for ďAdditional and other bag charges.Ē
These charges are in addition to any charge assessed for additional or overweight baggage.
