Orlando International Airport becomes the second American Airlines location to offer customers the option to tag their own bags.
Boston and Austin were test cities for self-tagging, and for a while AAdvantage members with Elite status in Boston were being offered bonus miles as an inducement to give it a try.
During several months of feedback and tests, American observed that customers were able to speed up their check-in time (in Austin it improved by as much as 55 percent) and AUS become the first airport to offer self-tagging permanently.
It’s an easy enough process, here’s how American explains it:
Self-Tag is easy! Just follow the steps below.
Step 1: Print your bag tags at the self-service kiosk.
Step 2: Attach the bag tag to each checked bag.
Step 3: Bring your self-tagged baggage to the designated Self Tag drop-off location.
Not sure why it’s didn’t work out in Boston….<insert Boston joke here>
