If you’ve been hankering for the conveniences that once came free with your plane tickets, you’ll be happy to learn that many of them are being offered again on American Airlines – but, rather predictably, with a price tag attached. The airline rolled out a “Boarding and Flexibility Package” option on its menu of “Your Choice” services last week, as part of its commitment to giving customers increased control over their travel experiences. Now, passengers can secure their places in Group 1 of general boarding (allowing them to be among the first to board their flight), enjoy a 50 percent off discount on flight changes (a $75 value), and have the option to standby for earlier flights on departure days, free of charge. With introductory prices as low as $9, depending on your flight route, we think these conveniences may be well worth indulging in.
