    OK... so I called American Airlines here in EZE today to ask details of baggage fees. I will probably need to check a 3rd piece of luggage on this trip and wanted to know what this will cost me..... the answer was $150. Im ok and all is clear until this point....

    However, the agent goes on to tell me that if I pay this surcharge, this one time payment of the surcharge allows me to check this 3rd piece of luggage on my entire itinerary..... ie. if I re-check all 3 pieces on any of my onwards flights (all on the same ticketed itinerary), I will be entitled to this 3rd piece for all those onward flights free of charge.

    Can the resident AA experts kindly confirm this is true....?

    Thanks very much,
    Alex

    MFE-DFW-ORD
    (stop)

    ORD-MIA-EZE

    Highly doubt that is accurate. Have you checked the baggage policy on the website?

    Do you not have low tier Oneworld status? Nonetheless, if you are subject to a fee, I've never heard of a single fee covering the entire itinerary.

    The AAgent was incorrect, you'll have to pay the fee each time you check the additional bag.
