(AP) If you're traveling light, you'll be able to board earlier on American Airlines.

The airline said Thursday that people carrying just a personal item that fits under the seat no rolling suitcase will be allowed to board before most other passengers.

American says the change will speed up the boarding process and allow flights to take off sooner. The airline is trying to improve its on-time performance.

Airlines have been seeing a build-up in boarding times since they began charging fees for checked baggage as more people fight for the limited space in overhead bins.
