I think what has happened here is that the booking for Swiss is separate from the transatlantic booking on United. As a result, the 2 piece allowance from United, per person, is not transferred to Swiss, who for intra-European flights have a one piece allowance, with strict weight limits. Swiss are inflexible about this, which may be short-sighted, as some of their network depends on the "transfer" traffic... but until people start avoiding them, things won't change.

With the move towards ever more complicated allowances and "extras", it is very important not to go with the first "headline" price you see... the cheapest quoted price is often not the cheapest overall price.

It is a 7 hour drive from Geneva to Barcelona. For that money you could do a one way car rental and drive! (The route is pretty scenic).
