Checked Baggage Charges

American Airlines recently announced they will be charging passengers a fee for any checked bag. Customers who purchase tickets on or after June 15th will be charged $15 for their first checked bag, and $25 for a second checked bag. These are one-way fees.

Over the next few months, I think it will be interesting to see if other airlines will follow suit and begin charging for checked luggage. I'm assuming this is a strategy that all airlines have thought about implementing over the past couple of years. And now the competition can sit back and see how the travelers react.

Unfortunately for travelers, the airlines need to find ways to make more money. Though it may force me think twice about which airline I'll be flying, it is a good incentive to try to pack less. As stated on American Airlines website, the carry on regulations remain the same, "FAA security measures limit customers on all AA flights to one carry-on bag plus one personal item. The one carry-on bag must fit in an overhead compartment or under the seat. It should not exceed 45 linear inches (length + width + height) or weigh more than 40 lbs/18 kgs."

The good news......there is a VERY large selection of carry-on bags (45 linear inches or less) to choose from. From garment bags, to suitcases, to wheeled totes....there's plenty of options available
