It's going to cost you more to check bags on an American Airlines flight.

American said Friday that checking the first bag will cost $20, up from $15, and a second bag will cost $30, up from $25.

The change takes effect on domestic-travel tickets bought after Aug. 13.

Elite members of American's frequent-flier program continue to be exempt from the fees.

United, Delta, Continental and US Airways recently announced $5 increases in checked-bag fees, to $20 for the first and $30 for the second.
