American Airlines increases baggage fees

Monday, January 18, 2010

American Airlines has joined the crowd, on Monday saying it too will increase its checked baggage fees.

The new price is $25 for the first back, $35 for the second. That is up $5 for each bag, so a roundtrip flight with two bags will hit you for $120.

Six months ago it would have cost you about $100. A couple years back it would have cost nothing at all.

The new prices go into effect with tickets bought February 1, 2010.
