AA Luggage Charges?

AA Luggage Charges?

It's been quite a while since I've flown, so please bear with me:

I know that American Airlines is now charging for checked in luggage, but I don't seem to understand what the charges are for international flights (to the Caribbean).

Is the first bag free? If not what is the cost for the first bag and any other checked in bag?

Thank you for your help.

Flew AA to St John two weeks ago... $20 per checked bag.

The checked baggage fee only applies if you're travelling within the United States, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Canada. If you're going anywhere else in the Caribbean then you get 2 bags free of charge.

The AA baggage information on their website seems to have been reorganized. Quite easy to read/understand now.
