US Airways/American Airlines Baggage Fees
      #1586814 - 05/03/14 09:31 AM (70.193.4.255)

There was a discussion recently about getting one free checked bag on the new US Airways/American Airlines if you have their credit card. We received that notice yesterday, however, it states "one free checked bag on domestic flights". Domestic is no longer lumped in with Caribbean, so even if you have the credit card, your checked bags to SXM will not be free.

Apparently they aren't aligning all of their policies right away....I'm thinking it's just a matter of time.

Interesting! That's certainly not what their website says. I hope we'll be as fortunate in November!!

We flew back from SXM on April 7th and were charged $30 per bag for a whopping $120.00. We have the credit card……..

We flew back us air 4/28 and were not charged for luggage. Have never in 30 years traveling from sxm been charged for luggage on any airline.

The baggage fees on a lot of the airlines going to and from St. Martin are only a few years old and the rules for charging the fees change like the weather since they figured out theres big bucks to be made on this. Usually when new restrictions are put in place they only apply to tickets bought after the date they are put in place so anyone recently back probly wouldnt have the luggage fees unless the carrier had the laws in place when they bought the tix.
