American Airlines hikes U.S. baggage fees by $5
20 September, 2018


American Airlines Group Inc said on Thursday it would raise the fee for a first checked bag by $5 to $30 and the second bag to $40. The increase in the baggage fee will be effective for tickets bought beginning Sept. 21 for travel in the United States and other North America and Caribbean destinations, the airline said.

Other U.S. airlines, including Delta Airlines Inc and United Continental Holdings Inc , also announced a price hike recently.

The moves come at a time when Congress is considering whether to require the U.S. Transportation Department to assess if airline baggage and ticket change fees are "reasonable and proportional."
