Continental follows with new baggage rules

CONTINENTAL AIRLINES has followed most of its North Atlantic competitors with new rules regarding baggage, with immediate effect.  Essentially Economy Class passengers will be able to check one bag for free and will pay $50 for a second checked bag.  Customers checking in and pre-paying for bags at continental.com receive a $5 discount.  The service fee will not apply to EliteAccess customers, including those seated in BusinessFirst, and OnePass Elite and SkyTeam Elite members, nor customers travelling on full-fare EconomyClass (Y) tickets, Continental Airlines Presidential Plus primary card members or military personnel and their families travelling on official orders.  Across the Atlantic, Continental operates up to 312 departures weekly from 29 airports in 16 countries to its US gateway hubs at Cleveland, Houston and New York. www.continental.com
