Yesterday's glitch with American Airlines' baggage system that delayed flights and kept checked bags from traveling with their owners is now, as of 6 a.m., fixed, but some prior flights were canceled. An AA spokesman told the AP baggage was sorted by hand yesterday and they are "marked and ready to go to their destinations." It's still unclear what caused the system to fail (it's only a year old). And while most of the affected checked bags were for international flights and therefore not subject to the check bag fees, domestic travelers with less than three checked bags had the fees waived.
