Book Directly with Aegean or through United?

Newbie to Aegean. I will be flying from USA to Europe on American partner Iberia.
While in Europe, I need to fly from PRG to ATH to FCO. I want to fly Aegean but unsure if I should book through the United portal or directly with Aegean. United seems to want me to pay higher cost plus baggage fees. I do not have any mileage credit with either airline.

Thanks in advance and sorry if this question been posted. Tried searching!

If United charges you more and you are not a FF with them, then what would be the advantage of using them to buy your ticket? Use the Aegean site and basta!

Always book direct unless you get additional benefits from booking via a 3rd party (shopping points bonus portals etc.).
for Intra-Europe flights, be careful to select the additional baggage you need during ticket purchase (most fares donít include any baggage, even on national carriers such as Aegean).

I think directly through Aegean will be best.
