United jumps on baggage fee hike bandwagon

Fares from Washington DC:

    Inevitably, United has also raised its first and second baggage fees, matching Delta and Continental. All three airlines now charge $25 for the first checked bag, up from $20, and $35 for the second, up from $30.  There is a small discount for paying the bag fee online rather than at the airport.
