thats good news.

AA was a nightmare...they charged 150 USD for up to 23 kg...even for short flights.

in short, we now pay:

up to 23 kg: standard bag prices
23-32 kg: 150 USD

one way, length up to 320cm

That's ok. If it would be 100 USD, it would be really fair priced.

At least much better than before.
