This totally sucks.... In addition to the high airline ticket prices now add on $50 more.
Quoting from AP:
American Airlines Group Inc. announced changes to the frequent-flier programs and checked-bag policies on Tuesday.
Here are some of the highlights of changes to American's bag fees:
— A new charge of $25 to check a bag from the U.S. to Mexico, the Caribbean or Central America, starting immediately. A second bag is still $40.
