    Since when does AA charge for carryon baggage? Am I missing something here?

    What AA did wrong was refuse to accept cash from this pax, insisting on credit cards only. Her credit card was declined due to some bank problem and cash was all she had.

    Cash is legal tender, and AA has no business refusing to accept it. Funny rules like this are just there to trap people at the airport and force them to abandon a flight, freeing up a paid-for seat that now can be sold to someone else at the last minute.

    She rolled through with a bag that wasn’t carry on size and got popped. Glad a good Samaritan stepped up and helped her out.

    Alangore… Did you read the article? AA doesn’t accept cash at the gate
    “In order to pay by cash, however, she’d have to go back to the ticket counter, which would cause her to miss her flight.”
    AA also no longer accepts cash onboard flights. The reason is a bit simple. The more people who handle cash, the greater the chance of it getting “lost”
    There is also a much more manual record keeping involved with cash. OP’s problem was she should have brought a legal carryon, or checked it before her first flight.
