United Airlines is offering a Premier Baggage program, a subscription service allowing United passengers to pay an introductory price of $249 a year for the right to check two standard bags on any United flight, including United Express. The carrier's current domestic checked baggage fees are $15 to $20 for the first checked bag, and $25 to $30 for the second. The service also covers baggage fees for up to eight companions who are traveling under the same confirmation number as the subscriber.
