American Airlines Raises Baggage Fees

Despite lowered fuel prices, American Airlines just can’t seem to figure out how to make money. That’s too bad for you — because you’ll be paying higher bag fees.

DowJones says the airline reported a 21% drop in second-quarter revenue last week. Get your wallet out, travelers.

The fees “will rise to $20 for the first bag and $30 for the second on tickets bought after Aug. 13. The changes will also affect regional affiliate American Eagle and AmericanConnection flights.”

How angry does this make you?
