Looks like AC took my MileagePlus number, but may not recognize my *G? Will this issue be resolved at check in, or should I take an action before hand?
There is a known issue where AC will try to charge you for a UA codeshare/AC operated flight, even with UA*G number on the PNR. If you want to check-in online, just mark no checked bags, and check the bag in-person. Otherwise, *G is entitled to at least 1 free checked bag, depending on class of service.
