American Airlines increased the fees it charges some passengers for checked bags on certain flights, as the airline sees record-low passenger numbers due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Flyers traveling between the US and Europe or Africa, and flying on a basic economy fare ticketed by American Airlines, will pay $75 each way for a checked bag for tickets sold beginning April 21.

The previous fee was $60 each way. The lower fare will still apply to tickets that were sold before April 21.
