American Airlines’ Updated Baggage Fees

As of February 20, 2024, American Airlines announced an update to its baggage fees. The first bag in economy class for domestic flights is now priced at $40. The fee for a second bag or suitcase varies between $45 and $50, depending on whether the payment is made online or at the airport terminal, marking a $5 increase from previous rates.

American Airlines has specified for travelers to Cuba that they can check up to 2 suitcases with a maximum weight of 70 pounds (32 kgs) per suitcase, in addition to 1 carry-on bag and 1 personal item. It’s important to note that “all baggage charges are non-refundable and apply per person, at each check-in location, in each direction, even if you purchase or obtain an upgrade that includes free checked baggage.”

In case of an incorrect charge, it’s advised to contact an American representative within 45 days for inquiries or to claim a refund.

Delta Airlines Increases Baggage Prices
