1. Oversized and excess items must be checked and are subject to fees.
2. Customers who have already checked in online at united.com are invited to check bags here.
In the following two sentences, do you think the word CHECK has the same meaning? In sentence 1, CHECK, to me, just means to inspect to find out something, but in sentence 2, it seems CHECK means to check in, as you do before you get on the airplane, or to leave the bag so that you can get on the plane.
Also oversized and excess? Does this means that the two adjectives refer to the same items, that is, they are using two adjectives to mean the same thing, as we always say in legal texts, such as “rent or lease”? Without any context, this could mean both oversized and excess, two different items. In other words, this is different from oversized or excess.
By the way, without any context, could excess items mean: 1) an item that is larger in number than is allowed or an additional item, 2) an item that is larger in weight than is allowed, or 3) an item that is larger in size than is allowed?
Thanks in advance for your clarification.
