That same item, though, would cost 75 percent more — or $8.35 in FBA fees — if Amazon had to ship it out to a customer who bought the product on competing platforms like Etsy, eBay or the seller’s own online store.

Doesn't seem like good grounds for a anti-trust complaint. Amazon isn't reasonably required to fulfull orders outside their platform at all. That they do so is a service to theose other sites/platforms, and if they can get a better price elsewhere they are free to do so.

Amazon competing against its own sellers

Not much better case here. Again they could just not allow other sellers on their platform.

Perhaps their best case is the Prime bundling but still that seems week to me. If that's all they got I don't think that this case should rightfully go anywhere.
