Luggage guidelines – updated for 2013
With convention season upon us once again, I thought it would be a good idea to update the luggage guidelines applied by American air carriers.
Updated as of February 2013, here are the list of baggage fees being charged by major American airlines (excluding special programs or privileges) for travel within the United States. All of the below restrict luggage to a maximum of 62 linear inches* and 50 lbs (except Spirit, which draws the line at 40 lbs.).
