[Continental] Trinis must pay for checked bags
Continental Airlines starts new policy today...
Jul 15, 2011

Starting today, customers travelling between Trinidad and North America on Continental Airlines will have to pay to check their luggage when they buy certain economy class tickets.

United Continental Holdings, Inc yesterday announced changes to United and Continental's checked baggage policy for customers travelling between Trinidad and the United States, Canada and US territories such as Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

The new policy takes effect immediately for tickets purchased beginning today for travel on or after August 15, the airline said in a statement.

Customers who purchase certain economy class tickets for travel on or after the effective date will pay a service fee of US$25 to check one bag and an additional US$40 to check a second bag.

United and Continental continue to offer options for customers travelling with checked bags.

The service fee will not apply to elite customers, those seated in first and business class and US military personnel and their families travelling on official orders, the airline said.

United and Continental's baggage policy for domestic travel and carry-on baggage in the United States remains unchanged.

United Continental Holdings, Inc is the holding company for both United Airlines and Continental Airlines.

Together with United Express, Continental Express and Continental Connection, these airlines operate an average of 5,820 flights a day to 373 airports on six continents from their hubs in Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Guam, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/Newark Liberty, San Francisco, Tokyo and Washington, DC.

Ho-hum, business as usual. But now I only wonder how soon the unimaginative copy-cat CAL management will start to rip the rest of us off with that charge too....
