OMG, this is retarded. It won't be long before all the other airlines follow suit. It's becoming more and more of a hassle to calculate the bottom-line price of airline travel...

Checked bag restrictions follow the rules of the operating carrier (the airline you're flying on) regardless of who its booked through.

so non-elites have to stay away from CO/UA operated flights if they want free 2nd bags... not as bad as I thought... altho this could start a trend seeting the stage for other airlines to follow suit :'(

Continental Airlines Presidential PlusSM primary Cardmembers get their first and second checked bags free. Other Continental Airlines Chase primary credit Cardmembers get their first checked bag free.

it looks like it won't work for the whole family only the primary cardholder

It works for anyone on the primary cardholders reservation automatically.
It also works for non-primary cardholders and their whole reservation, but an airport agent has to override that manually.

CO/UA elites also get 2-3 free bags for them and everyone on their entire reservation.
The general rule is that everyone on the same res has the same policy as the most privileged traveler for everything except for upgrades. 
For upgrades the opposite rule is true-it follows the least privileged traveler.  Which is why you should book everyone together and then split the elites off of the reservation...

Correct, 1 free with OPP.

I would expect a match from AC/DL/US in short order.

AC tried this before but rescinded when CO/DL/US didn't match/
