AA remove carry on restriction 710x450

*This article has been adapted from an American Airlines press release


In an effort to provide better access to lower fares and continually meet your needs, American Airlines is eliminating the carry-on bag restriction on short haul routes with Basic Economy.

Beginning September 5, American Airlines will remove the bag restriction from short haul Basic Economy fares so that travelers who travel on Basic Economy fares – regardless of purchase date – will be allowed both a personal item and a carry-on bag like other Main Cabin fares.

Elite customers and customers with eligible AAdvantage credit cards traveling on Basic Economy tickets will continue to receive earlier boarding and free checked bags on domestic itineraries.
