American Airlines just introduced a new baggage tracking feature, which allows customers to track their luggage from the moment it’s checked in to when it’s picked up at the carousel via the American website. The carrier announced the free system yesterday to address customers’ concerns about where their bags are during all stages of a trip.

As for other major carriers, Delta announced its own baggage tracking feature via its website and app in 2011. Other airlines in the industry have been slow to catch on to the trend, however.

Remember, many airline co-brand credit cards, including the Citi / AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard and Citi / AAdvantage Executive World Elite Mastercard, waive baggage fees. You can read more about how to save on baggage fees here.
