United Airlines will be charging some of its customers a new fee for checking more than one piece of baggage.

United fliers who purchase nonrefundable domestic economy tickets,and who are not elite members of the airline’s frequent flyer program,will be charged $25 for a second checked bag beginning May 5, thecompany said Monday. In addition to the fee for a second bag, the costto check in a third and a fourth bag will be $100 per bag for allcustomers.

No other airline has matchedthe baggage fee, which Chicago-based United estimates will generatemore than $100 million annually for the company.
