American will favor passengers without roller bags
In a quest to speed up the boarding process, American Airlines is letting passengers board sooner if they travel lightly.
The airline said Thursday that people carrying just a personal item that fits under the seat - no rolling suitcases - will be allowed to board before most other passengers.
American said that the change will allow flights to take off sooner, helping the airline improve its on-time performance.
