Kind of shrinkflation. Airlines really have been aggressive with prices and worse amenities

American shows their priorities here. They're trying to squeeze out additional profit without doing anything that would meaningfully improve their service or otherwise add value to the customer. The baggage service is fundamentally unchanged, and having to go to certain sites for reservations will only decrease customer's choices and buying power.

As someone who's stuck flying out of one of American's largest hubs, it'd be greatly appreciated if they could improve the cleanliness of their aircraft and improve the overall quality of their product. But it's much better for them to find ways to increase profit margins without having to make any significant investments.

But if a passenger weighs double a healthy person's weight there's no additional fee?

I am not sure about Japanese airlines and or their baggage limit, however, for oversea flights from Japan I will only fly United and or Hawaiian who still give 2 free luggage. I like United Airline's service they are good and polite, and I have never had any issues when traveling with them. I have not flown Hawaiian; however, I would absolutely give them a try if an opportunity came up.
