The United forum would probably be able to give you more info I would think, unless of course you've asked there already.

Cabin baggage 5cm bigger

Hi!
I'm going to fly with Aer Lingus and my bag is 5 cm bigger in height. Do you think it would be a problem?
Please, help a girl who wants to take outfits options 😅

Another baggage question. Traveling on a UA award ticket (016 ticket stock) in coach. Flying LHR-DUB then return DUB-AMS. As a UA 1K, do I get any free baggage? If so, does the wife on the same PNR have the same allowance? I assume not as they are just partners and don't seem to have strong reciprocal benefits but thought I would ask.

If not I what is the fee for baggage? Per EI's website it depends on fare, but since it's an award fare not sure the rules. These are the only flights in the PNR, no connecting TATL flights.

EI's baggage rules seem rather complex! It looks as if your best bet if you have or can get the EI PNR for your trip is to try adding a baggage allowance on line as it goes by total weight, number of bags, and probably other factors. They seem to charge double if you leave it to the airport.

What does the ticket say about allowances? Award tickets issued through Avios always come with a basic 20kg allowance so you need to check with United if they do similar.

EI don't care about status when it comes to checked luggage, everyone pays no exemptions and UA means nothing to them.

Called EI and they said 20 kg per pax. This is what my receipt says:

Baggage allowance and charges for this itinerary.

Baggage fees are per traveler

In compliance with U.S. Department of Transportation regulations, checked baggage policies for your entire itinerary are determined by Aer Lingus. Visit united.com/baggage for more information.Origin and destination for checked baggage1stbag2ndbagMaximum weight and dimensions per piece of baggage

That seems to parse to one free bag of up to 20kg weight and 62in. total dimensions on each leg with a charge of GBP65 LHR to DUB and EUR75 DUB to AMS for a second bag and an additional 20kg.
