UAL Corp.'s United Airlines is doubling the fee it now charges for passengers who check a second bag on domestic flights as major carriers look for ways to recoup some of the soaring costs hitting the airline industy.
Boosting the fee to $50 is a first for U.S. carriers and the move comes seven months after the airline was the first to enact a $25 fee on a second checked bag. The increased fee is effective on tickets bought starting Tuesday for travel on or after Nov. 10. Like the original rate, it doesn't apply to customers in business or first class, or on international flights.
