Flying to Haiti? American Airlines now charges for all checked bags

For all Haitian airline passengers who used to enjoy traveling with 2 big suitcases filled with goodies free of charge when flying American Airlines, things have changed... American Airlines now charges for all checked bags...

KREYOL: Pasaje Haitien ki te konn vwayaje nan American Airlines ak 2 gwo valiz yo, Valiz pa gratis ankò... American menm jan ak Spirit konyea, W ap tcheke valiz ou? PEYE $$$... Kisa ou panse de sa???

We don't know exactly when these changes took effect but If you are flying to and from Haiti expect to pay the following prices for your luggage.

1st checked bag$25
2nd checked bag$55
3rd checked bag$150
All additional bags$200

Wait... Don't start filling up these bags thinking since you're gonna pay for it why not... If your bag is more than 50 lbs, the price jumps to $100; if it is more than 70 lbs, the price jumps to $200.

As posted on Americain Airlines Checked baggage policy page, All baggage fees are non-refundable and apply per person, each way.

So I guess, as far as checking bags are concerned, flying American Airlines is no different than flying Spirit Airlines... LOL...

What do you think about that?
