United Flyers can Check Two Bags To/From China & Hong Kong
United has a bit of an odd policy concerning checked bags when flying between North America and China/Hong Kong. Passengers flying Economy Class from North America to the Asian countries receive one checked bag free, but passengers flying from China/Hong Kong to North America receive two checked bags for free. This obviously makes no sense if you’re flying roundtrip.
United is finally updating their policy on these routes. All passengers traveling between North America and China/Hong Kong (in either direction) will now receive two free checked bags. So feel free to bring along an extra suitcase if you’re headed to China or Hong Kong!
