What happens if your bag is over 50 pounds American Airlines?
American Airlines overweight baggage is considered any bag weighing more than 50lbs. The fees for checking overweight baggage are $100 for bags weighing 51-70lbs and $200 for bags weighing 71-100lbs. These fees are charged in addition to any standard, excess or oversized baggage fees.
How do you know if your bag is over 50 pounds?
Weigh yourself on a home scale, then weigh yourself holding the bag. Subtract the first from the second and you’ll get the weight of the bag. If the bag is bigger than the scale, such as hanging over the sides, it won’t weigh properly and that’s why you have to stand on the scales holding it.
