American Airlines to charge for front-row seats

American Airlines has found another fee to charge passengers.

The Fort Worth, Texas, airline will charge between $19 and $39 for "Express Seats" - those spots in the first few rows of coach that include bulkhead seats.

The carrier said Wednesday that the price of the seats includes getting on the plane in the first "general boarding" group of passengers.

The seats can only be purchased at airport kiosks between 24 hours to 50 minutes prior to the flight for travel within the U.S.

American still provides travelers with the option to reserve other seats in the coach cabin at no charge.

Several other major airlines, including United Airlines and Continental Airlines, also charge for the best seats in coach.
