Question US Airways Premier World MC and checked bag fees

Hello folks,

First, I tried searching for an answer to my question here but I came up with nothing (maybe I didn't use the right keywords).

My question is...Does the US Airways Premier World MC include the benefit of 2 free checked bags. They website does not specifically state and I could not locate it in the ToS.

http://www.mostmiles.com/mvt/

It does mention First Class check in but since it does not specifically state free bags, I was hoping someone with the card, who is not a preferred member (since you already get free bags) could confirm. I am curretly a SP but will possibly not qualify since I am no longer travelling as often.

I am unsure if the FC check in stated on the card website is just to use the FC line or that you actually get the free bags. If free bags are allowed, then it would be worth it to pay for this card as a current RT costs up to $120 (2 bags e/w).

Thank you

Oz.R

I believe the Delta AMEX is the only card that offers that benefits to non-elite cardholders.

Yes. As danpeake stated, You don't get free bags. Just Priority check-in and boarding. Check the T's&C's:
"First Class check-in and Zone 2 Boarding (for World Elite & Premier World Cardmembers only): Premier World Cardmembers are invited to check-in at the US Airways Preferred or First Class counter when checking-in for their flight. The Primary Cardholder is invited to board the aircraft early as part of Zone 2 provided their Dividend Miles number is part of their reservation. First Class check-in and Zone 2 boarding are only available on US Airways operated and marketed flights. First Class check-in and Zone 2 boarding benefits are for World Elite and Premier World Cardmembers only and do not apply if you receive a World or Platinum MasterCard."
Delta's Gold/Plat/Reserve Skymiles card (so far) is the only free bag card. If/when a free bag becomes a feature, it will be all over USAir's and Barclay's website.

I think $89 a year is totally worth not standing in line to check in, and being one of the first to board, but that's just me.

Continental has had bag fee waiver with its credit cards for a long time. Most cards get 1 bag for free and Presidential Plus gets 2 bags. Delta just recently added this benefit.
