And so it begins.

AMR Corp. just announced that it will begin charging for ALL checked luggage on all American Airlines and American Eagle flights, beginning with tickets purchased after 6/15/2008.

This is bad. bad. bad.

Besides the money issue, it's going to make life hell for those who normally carry-on only--say buh-bye to overhead bin space and hello to very cranky passengers. And while the charge doesn't affect elite passengers, surely the overhead bins will be affected, which, of course means even the "elites" will have a much less pleasurable flying experience.
