Vayama UA tix and checked bags

I am looking at a United ticket (NYC-MUC) that seems to be somewhat cheaper on Vayama than on UA.com. Fare rules show a K fare.

However, on the side of the ticket details Vayama states that "checked bags are not included" (although when clicking on that statement, it says that "Vayama may not have received checked bag information from the carrier").

Seems more like a glitch - I have not seen a UA TATL flight or fare until now that does not include checked bags. Is that even possible?

I would expect 1 free plus any status benes. That shouldn't change based on where you buy the ticket.

But it's likely a bulk fare so beware on the earnings.

Thanks, that's what I thought.

I don't much care for PQD or award miles. I think it will still earn PQM.

This being Vayama and UA, I'll probably wait till Monday (in case things break down and I have to call to fix).
