Baggage fees

Am flying in October 2013 from Manchester, UK to Frankfurt to Denver Colorado on a ticket from Lufthansa-United Airlines--whatever that means. How much will I be charged for my extra bag weighing under 50 pounds? Can I pay with a U.S. debit card or do I need cash?

Also when I arrive at the airport do I check in at the Lufthansa desk or the United desk?

I have used Lufthansa to Frankfurt and then on to Canada, and used the Lufthansa desk at MAN.

They are both Star Alliance members so will send you to the right one if necessary.

According to the United airlines website $100 for the second checked bag.

There is no "United desk" or "Lufthansa desk". The check-in desks are owned by the airport and are allocated to airlines as needed. When you get to the airport, there will be screens listing departing flights and showing which check-in desks are being used for each flight.

It's really very simple, the policy is to allways check in with the operating carrier.
