At least FED EX can get some revenue out of the deal and they won't misplace peoples bags in the process.

CHICAGO (AP) -- United Airlines is offering door-to-door luggage service for $25 per item each way during Spring Break.
The overnight delivery service is provided through FedEx.
Customers who have booked travel between March 18 and March 29 within the continental U.S. on at least one United-operated or United-marketed flight are eligible.
Checking luggage normally during the same period will cost $20 to $25 for the first item and $30 to $35 for the second, depending when travel was booked.
The door-to-door deal is available until 5 p.m. Eastern time March 19 or supplies run out, United said in a statement Wednesday.
Travelers may purchase the door-to-door baggage option up to 10 days before departure.
When it absolutely, positively HAS to be there, you don't move your own luggage....


It is pretty sad when an airline concedes it can't even do that right!
Probably reduce lost/damaged bags (and guitars) by 90%.
Test run

If this method proves to be successful will it mean that, if and when needed the ramp/baggage handlers jobs/pay can be in jeopardy?

Mmm... I dunno, will they have load ballast to some of the planes for W&B? I bet Yonited didn't think about that...
