More Changes If You Want To Use Mileage For A Plane Ticket

Posted: Updated:

American Airlines and U.S. Airways tweak their rules on bags and miles.

The airlines, which merged in December, are changing policies on checked bag fees and redeeming miles for flights.  American passengers traveling on redeemed miles will no longer be able to check bags for free, neither will those in economy even if they paid full-fare for their ticket.

American is also changing the number of miles required for unrestricted free flights.  U.S. Airways is ending blackout days, and the number of free checked bags is changing for some customers.  

Find out what's new before you head for the airport. Mileage and baggage rules can be found on the airlines' websites.
