Starting today, April 9, American Airlines will implement a USD$10 fee per passenger for paper tickets when passengers qualify for an electronic ticket.

The fee applies only to customers who purchase air travel on American and American Eagle through the www.aa.com web site, AA reservations centers, at Travel Centers and at airports.

American said it will waive the fee if there is a significant operational issue or job action.

The fee does not apply to passengers who pay full fare or purchase tickets through travel agents, or to tickets issued for Executive Platinum members' travel.

Customers with electronic tickets will still receive a paper receipt by fax, mail or e-mail that includes their itinerary, record locator number and fare.

The fee is being implemented at all American Airlines U.S. and Canadian locations.

American says it put the policy into effect to recoup the costs associated with paper ticket processing and distribution and to encourage electronic ticketing where applicable.

Effective today, American's Ticket Delivery Service will implement a priority delivery fee of USD$25 for passengers who elect to have their travel documents sent by priority overnight delivery.

This fee will apply only to passengers who are traveling at least seven days after purchasing their tickets and elect an overnight delivery. For passengers who are traveling less than seven days after purchasing their ticket, standard overnight delivery will continue to be offered free of charge.

This fee also was implemented to recoup costs associated with priority mail handling and to reduce unnecessary overnight delivery transactions, the carrier said.


Hmmm... I think it's time for everyone to learn how to use E-tickets. It will save tons of $ for business travellers who have no idea what E-ticket is.  Smile
