The star out of LA does have the baggage program, I used it 2 years ago on united. I am going again in march and will be using the baggage prgram on us air. I don't know what other air lines they use. I was told that the cost is going to be $19.95 for the program plus what the airline charges for a baggage fee. US Air baggage fee is $20.00 for the first bag and $30.00 for the second bag. The cost is per person. Hope this helps out little.
Got home last night, bags in hand.
We wound up curb checking, since we only had carry-ons and went
straight from the pier to airport (no excursions)
But some others in our group had lots of luggage and used the BAGS program w/ great relief to the husbands
It was sti. 19.95/bag, however with some in our group they were adding the addtional airline fee, others they were not. All on Continental, all one-pass members, and the guy w/ the most travel was charged the most.
Anyway, everyone arrived home w/ all their luggage.
