Case Summary: 

American Airlines has agreed to settle a class action alleging that some of American’s charges for baggage breached its contracts with customers. The suit is based on the idea that when customers buy tickets, a contract is formed. According to the complaint, American promised certain customers that they could take a certain number of bags with them at no additional charge, depending on the route of travel, class, frequent flyer status, and other factors, then charged them anyway.
