American Airlines' passengers travelling between locations in Europe, India and the US will soon have to pay 50 dollars (about Rs 2,400) to check-in their second baggage under the airlines' revised baggage policy.
The revised policy takes effect for tickets purchased on or after September 14, 2009. The changes apply to transatlantic travellers on flights operated by American Airlines for travel to, from or through India, as well as European countries of Belgium, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Switzerland, an AA statement said on Saturday.
The Texas-headquartered carrier said customers who purchase certain economy class tickets on or after the effective date would be able to check one bag for free and pay 50 dollars for a second checked bag.
The revised baggage policy would be applicable for customers travelling between certain locations in Europe, India and the US, including territories such as Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
However, passengers booked in first and business class cabins, as well as those who purchase full-fare tickets in the economy class cabins would not be required to pay any checked bag charge, the Airlines said.
