United will increase checked bag fees for domestic and short-haul Caribbean flights, starting with travel beginning March 6. 

The price will be $35 for the first checked bag and $45 for the second checked bag, up from the current rate of $30 and $40, respectively. 

However, customers who pay their bag fee online before check-in will continue to pay the current rate. Travelers who booked their trips prior to Feb. 21 also won’t have to pay the higher fees. 

With the increase to $35 for the first checked bag, United is following a lead set by JetBlue in January. Other carriers may well follow. 

After JetBlue increased its fee for the first checked bag to $30 in August 2018, American, Delta, United, Alaska and Hawaiian quickly followed.
