United is... no wait, is NOT... raising its baggage fee.

United had big plans. The legacy airline was going to double its fee for a second checked bag to a whopping $50. But don't worry: the plan is being shelved.

What happened? Well, I'm sure that someone brought a projection to United's management showing how much revenue could be raised from boosting the fee. Then, a few weeks later, someone else decided to adjust that revenue to account for the people who would just fly with another airline.
