United Goes All FedEx

United Airlines will now ship your luggage door to door — for a fee. And it ain’t cheap.

United will have your luggage picked up at your home or office by FedEx and delivered to your destination the next day for $149 per bag for flights of less than 1,000 miles and $179 for longer trips among the 48 contiguous states, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. That’s one way.

The catch is, you have to fly United to be eligible for the service.

Anyway, United will still fly ME across the country for less than that.
