AMR bag charges mean more staff

June 07, 2008|From Times Wire Services

AMR Corp.'s American Airlines says it's putting more workers at airports to ease delays when it starts charging passengers for their first checked bag this month.

The $15 fee, the first at a major U.S. airline, takes effect June 15. Other steps to ease congestion include erecting a checkpoint to screen travelers for oversize bags and dropping a $2 fee for curbside luggage check-in.
