DALLAS (AP) – American Airlines is changing the way it charges you to fly.

American will charge up to $88 more per round trip for passengers who want a basic ticket that includes checking baggage or changing the reservation later on. Currently the airline levies separate fees for those and other extras for everyone except premium passengers.

It’s calling the new fare levels “Choice,” “Choice Essential” and “Choice Plus.”

American said Wednesday that the options will be sold only on its aa.com website for travel in the contiguous 48 states.
