American Airlines will charge passengers an extra $5 to check their first and second pieces of luggage, a new charge that will have ramifications for meetings and incentive travel groups travelling to top U.S. meeting places.
The charge, assessed on tickets purchased on or after Aug. 14, raises the carrier’s domestic first-bag fee to $20 and second-bag fee to $30, whether those charges are paid online or at the airport.
