For a price, you can avoid paying a fee on American

Here's a headscratcher: If you pay American Airlines' new $9-$19 Boarding and Flexibility Package fee, you don't have to pay a fee for priority boarding, or getting on a standby flight, and you could get $75 off the change-fee if you need to switch to another flight.

As Chris Elliott says, "I’m not making this up, folks. American is allowing you to pay a fee to avoid paying a fee."

What will they think of next?
