United Doubles Fee for 2nd Checked Bag to $50

The Wall Street pirates are scaring the bejabbers out of us honest citizens, while the price of oil has dropped below $100 a barrel.

What better time, then, for United Airlines to demonstrate just how big its tin ear really is?

United quietly upped the one-way fee for checking a second bag to $50, for tickets bought starting tomorrow for travel starting Nov. 10.

In an announcement sent on the PR Newswire, United spoke of the "challenging economic environment." Apparently with a straight face. Here's the announcement.

The fee for the first checked bag remains at $15. For now.
