AeroMexico Baggage Fees (And How to Avoid Paying Them)

AeroMexico baggage fees

In comparison to other airlines, AeroMexico has a pretty straightforward policy when it comes to baggage fees.  It’s helpful to note that if your route does require payment, the first two bags are relatively inexpensive and you’ll definitely save a bit of cash by paying at the time of booking (rather than at the airport).
