Continental Baggage

Does anyone know how we can get free baggage for Continental? My FIL is flying next month and we could really use this.

He is a vet, but they only offer free baggage to active duty.

The only way would be to do a carry on and buy things here!!!

your only options are to fly first class, pay for a full-fare economy ticket, fly frequently enough to earn their "elite" status, or I believe you can now open certain checking/credit card accounts and receive a free checked bag (you'd have to check their website...can't recall which ones off the top of my head).

Or you can do carry-on only.

So, unless you spend a lot of money flying all the time, you'll just have to pay the checked bag fee. If you buy your tickets online and pay for the checked bags in advance, you can save about $5 per bag, as opposed to paying at the airport.
