Tired of waiting around for your luggage? Don't feel like cramming everything into a carry-on? American Airlines has the solution: a new baggage delivery service that brings your luggage straight to your home, hotel or office.
The airline is teaming up with BAGS VIP Luggage Delivery to bring your bags from the airport to your final destination, for a fee. One bag will run you $29.95, two bags will cost $39.95, and three to 10 bags will cost $49.95, on top of the other baggage fees you'll have to pay.
“We did recognize there were passengers who would like to just bypass the baggage claim,” David Vance, Managing Director of Customer Planning Operations for American Airlines, told ABC News. “By offering this service, we think it provides an additional opportunity for passengers to get to their meetings or their vacations and bypass baggage claim altogether."
According to the airline, baggage delivery will take one to four hours, depending on your location and distance from the airport. When you register your bag with BAGS VIP Luggage Delivery, your bag will be tagged with a special indicator so it's easily identifiable by BAGS VIP personnel.
Interested? Delivery is available seven days a week, including holidays. You'll need to order the service with American Airlines at least 24 hours in advance of your flight. The service is available to all passengers at more than 200 domestic airports and some international airports.
