I don`t think that, in this case, during the delta core merger, they “arrogantly believed that they don`t need help.” DL cut the AA tie mainly because AA dropped passengers on Delta when they needed help, much more so than Delta. This first eliminated the advantage of the interline agreement, so that it was cut off there. Skift reports that United Interline has deals with more than 150 airlines, which is a bit crazy when you think about it. Why did they drop these 5? Hello luck – any idea if this has actually come into effect and/or how strict are they? (I know you don`t fly, just if I asked) Looking for bags through two different tickets bf EEE-gru, LAN gru-aep. Thank you! No more reason to fly the Alaska Virgin America and Jet Blue, if possible. I try to avoid Delta, because it is not even on the interline partner, if a separate ticket is booked and now united. When will they realize that customers who know how to avoid airlines that do these things, and those who don`t, will be angry when they show up, they won`t be able to check luggage all the way. And then the airlines wonder why the passengers are so rude. Place them in seats as small as possible and deprive them of comfort. @Evan it is the opposite.
The final carrier is the party liable in case of damage/loss, in accordance with the international agreement. While most other airlines communicate baggage rates via hard-to-navigate tables, United has developed an official baggage fee calculator tool for user comfort. You can enter your MileagePlus login information to get the service fee for checked baggage for the flight you booked. You can also use the tool to browse checked baggage service fees for other flights by typing the departure points and final destinations. The computer also lists the cost of oversized, excess or overweight luggage based on your itinerary and class of service. The most fundamental aspect of interline agreements is that you can check baggage through airlines and tickets. Now you can no longer check in a piece of baggage from Newark to London on your United flight and have it automatically changed to your London-Dubai flight with Emirates. In other words, if you book such an itinerary, you need to go through immigration, leave exit security, claim your luggage and check again. In the best case, it`s annoying, but it requires a much longer connection instead. What do you think of United abandoning its interline agreements with five Middle Eastern airlines? @Lucky Etihad is not listed. I wonder if your Star Alliance rumors are behind it.
I think it`s pretty serious not to leave the ticket bags checked separately, but not even allowing it for all your partner airlines is somewhat shocking. Actions say more than words. That was The message from United CEO Oscar Munoz in an email sent to customers last week, in which he continued to apologize for the incident that violently saw Dr. Dao removed from his flight. The airline also unveiled a list of ten policy changes that they believe will help prevent such a situation in the future. This ranged from a promise not to call the police, unless it was about security, to a no-questions compensation policy for permanently lost pockets. I think people here make a mountain out of a hill of moles. United knows exactly how many people and revenue are tied to these deals. Since United abandoned Dubai, there probably hasn`t been as much demand for it. I don`t think it`s a big thing at all, and I think some of the answers above are just people looking for another reason to unite. I think my point is that if our U.S. airlines can`t even cooperate with each other, it`s no surprise that they don`t feel like working with their colleagues in the Middle East.
