Luggage fees to increase

American Airlines announced it will change its checked bag charges, effec­tive with tick­ets pur­chased on or after Feb. 1, 2010. The charges apply to travel within the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands on American Airlines, American Eagle and AmericanConnection flights.

American’s checked bag charges will change to $25 for the first checked bag and $35 for the sec­ond checked bag, payable at the air­port on day of travel.

As before, American’s top cus­tomers are exempt from these checked bag charges. Among the exemp­tions are American’s elite AAdvantage® mem­bers, full-fare cus­tomers, con­firmed pas­sen­gers in the First or Business Class cabin, those trav­el­ing on mil­i­tary fares, and other trav­el­ers booked on the same record loca­tor as the pre­mium customer.

American said about 25 per­cent of its domes­tic cus­tomers pay checked bag charges, with other cus­tomers either exempt from the charge or choos­ing to not check a bag while abid­ing by American’s nor­mal carry-on policies.
