American Airlines to Implement Bag Embargo to Dominican Republic and Haiti for 30 Days
In an effort to ensure all customers' bags are accommodated on their scheduled flight, American Airlines said today it will impose a 30-day bag embargo on all excess, oversize, and overweight baggage on flights to Santo DomingoSantiago and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic. This embargo will also apply to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, when service resumes there.

"American and American Eagle's intent is to provide the best customer service possible and to consider the needs of all passengers," said Peter Dolara, Senior Vice President - Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America. "There are limits on the amount of baggage that can be carried in the cabin and cargo areas based on the size of the aircraft."

The embargo will be in effect between Jan. 14 and Feb. 14, 2010.  For the next 30 days, customers traveling to these destinations will be allowed to check two pieces of baggage of normal checked-bag size and weight – up to 50 pounds and 62 dimensional inches each. Customers will also be allowed one properly sized carry-on bag.

Excess, oversize, and overweight baggage will not be accepted for flights to the destinations covered by the bag embargo. Sports equipment, such as golf bags, bikes and surfboards, may be checked as part of the total checked-bag allowance, although additional charges may apply.
