United Airlines has bumped the price of their domestic flights in an effort to offset the rising cost of fuel and they haven’t ruled out the possibility of taking a page out of American Airlines book and charge passengers for checked luggage.

 

Passengers on United Airlines saw an increase of up to $60 for round-trip tickets on Thursday with all tickets seeing an increase of at least $10.

 

United Airlines, along with all carriers, has seen a dramatic spike in jet fuel costs just from the beginning of the year.

 

American Airlines recently announced they would be charging a $15 fee to passengers checking their first bag.
