This Popular U.S. Airline Is Finally Adding Carry-On Bags To Its Basic Economy Class

The advent of basic economy classes has meant that you can get across the country for much less cash, but it’s also brought a lot of annoying restrictions.

Now, American Airlines is bringing back one of the most requested basic economy features – complimentary, full-size carry-on bags. Some basic economy classes allow you to take a small purse or personal item along, but these have been required to be small enough to fit under your seat.

Starting on September 5, American Airlines will allow basic economy passengers to bring a normal carry-on bag on short-haul domestic flights as well as transatlantic flights.

This means that passengers who prefer not to pay for a checked bag in liey of packing everything they need in a carry-on may now be more tempted by American Airlines’ offerings.
