American, not wanting to be left out, raises bag fees

Posted by George Hobica on Monday, January 18, 2010

As Gomer Pyle used to say, Surprise, Surprise, Surprise (OK, we're dating ourselves, deal). American has joined the other (except Southwest) major carriers in raising the first checked bag fee to $25 and the second to $35, for tickets purchased after Feb 1, and no, there's no discount for paying the fee online as there is with the other airlines. See statement. This fee applies to travel from or to the US, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgins. Fees for travel to/from Canada remain the same.
