(Newser) – American Airlines is offering passengers the chance to pay twice for getting on the same plane. The airline plans to start selling passengers the option of being among the first to board a flight and avoid crowded aisles and jammed overhead bins, CNN reports. Early boarding is being offered as part of a package of perks, or for a $10 stand-alone fee.
