    American Airlines Cargo Announces Increased Weight Limit for Priority Parcel Service Product

    American Airlines Cargo Division (AA Cargo) announced today that it has increased the per-piece weight limit on its Priority Parcel Service (SM) (PPS) product from 70 to 100 pounds for shipments within the U.S. and to and from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

    For over 30 years, Priority Parcel Service has been available through Americans ticket counters, cargo terminals and dedicated PPS facilities. The product requires no advance booking, providing same day Next Flight Out ® service to professional shippers and couriers. Consumers may also use the product for shipping small items under 16 ounces and pets up to 100 pounds per kennel.

    "The new increased weight limit on our Priority Parcel Service is designed to provide U.S. shippers with greater options for their heavier time-sensitive packages," said Bob Dibble, manager of AA Cargo products. "For more than three decades, shippers have relied on American's Priority Parcel Service for same day service across the U.S. and many parts of the world."
