American Airlines Extends Basic Economy
American Airlines is expanding the availability of its basic economy fare. The cheaper offering, which doesn’t include a carry-on bag or advance seat assignment, has been tested on an increasing number of routes for the last six months. The airline now plans to introduce the fares across its entire domestic system by the end of September. American and other legacy carriers have introduced basic economy fares to compete with low-cost competitors like Spirit Airlines.
