CLEARY, ET AL. V. AMERICA AIRLINES, INC., NO. 4:21-CV-00184-O ,

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS



You May Be Entitled to a Refund of Baggage Fees From American Airlines Under a Class Action Settlement


The purpose of this website is to inform you that a Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit alleging that American Airlines, Inc. (“American”) incorrectly charged certain passengers to check their bags. American denies the allegations in the lawsuit, and the Court has not decided who is right. The case is titled Cleary, et al. v. American Airlines, Inc., No. 4:21-cv-00184-O (the”Case”).

This Case alleges that American incorrectly charged certain customers baggage fees after February 23, 2017 for tickets purchased before April 9, 2020 (“Case Timeframe”), breaching American’s contract with these customers. When customers buy tickets from American for air travel, a contract is formed in which American promises certain customers that they can check a certain number of their bags for no charge, depending on route of travel, cabin of service, frequent flyer status or other reasons. This Case alleges that during the Case Timeframe, American breached its contract with Settlement Class Members by charging them to check one or more of their bags despite promises that they could do so for no charge.
