American Airlines rolls out new fare structure

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 a reservation. Currently the airline levies separate fees for those and other extras for everyone except premium passengers.

American says the new fare structure is a response to customer complaints about fees for changing reservations. American will still sell a basic fare without protection against add-on fees for the "passenger who is just looking for the cheapest way to get to where they've got to go."

Airlines have found a way to take the edge off the stress of flying and make a few extra bucks along the way with fancy new cocktails, craft beers and elegant wines.

Flying isn't what it used to be. Long lines, ever-changing security rules and limited overhead bin space have all made traveling much more stressful. It's no wonder many passengers look for a little escape. Airlines â¿¿ who created much of this anxiety â¿¿ are happy to oblige.
