The United States Department of Transportation has issued new regulations, causing US Airways to alter their baggage policies.
Reacting to the new legislation, US Airways issued the following statement.
“US Airways will discontinue checking passengers’ bags when they have been ticketed on separate tickets to other flights, effective 01 August 2012.”
According to the airline, this will not affect passengers booked on interline itineraries on the same ticket.
If an itinerary is split into two or more tickets on two or more airlines, US Airways will only check the bag to the destination on the US Airways portion of the ticket.
