All flights with United.
Question: if it says that we can have 1 bag each with a max of 50lbs...can that just be 100lbs total or does EACH bag have to be 50lbs or under to avoid overweight fees?
We usually have flown charters, direct, in the past and they just have you throw both bags up on the scale and combine the weights..no problem. We have 1 bag that is our main suitcase and weighs just shy of 60lbs and our much smaller one (carries all the 'junk') was 34lbs. Overweight fee is $125 (for bags 51-100lbs) each way and I sure don't want to be paying that!
Do you advise us to try and equal out the weights or, if you've flown with United, will they just weigh our bags together for a combined weight and only apply charges if we're over the 100lbs?
