American Airlines is changing the way it charges you to fly.

Fort Worth-based American will charge $68 or $88 more per round trip for economy-class passengers who want a ticket that lets them check baggage or change the reservation without another fee.

The carrier says it's responding to customer complaints about fees, especially the charge -- typically $150 -- for changing a reservation.

American said Wednesday that it's selling the new tickets on its aa.com website and through travel agents for flights in the contiguous 48 states.

The airline will continue to sell fully refundable tickets in economy, which are usually more expensive.

American and parent company AMR Corp. have been operating under bankruptcy protection since November 2011.
