United Adds DIY Baggage Tagging Over at O'Hare

Practice your sticker skills before heading off to the airport, as one of the country’s largest carriers is going the DIY route when it comes to baggage tagging.

United Airlines just started offering self-service bag tagging over at Chicago-O’Hare in an effort to speed up the check-in process at the airport. The airline’s angle is that it provides more options for customers looking to do things for themselves, and it will free up agents to help out those flyers that have questions or need a little more assistance.

Right now there are 24 shiny new kiosks are ready to provide baggage tags and issues boarding passes. Testing things out will set you back $25, because that’s how much it costs to check a bag—ha. Once your bag is ready to go you’ll still need to drop it off with an agent, but it sounds like it’s a separate line designated just for this purpose.

Nothing too ground breaking here, but it does seem that this is catching on more and more here in the nifty fifty. As for being able to print things in advance at home? United says that’s coming soon, so stay tuned.
