Which Basic Economy Fares We Post
Over the past year, we’ve seen American, Delta, and United all shift to no-frills “Basic Economy” fares. You are now required to pay more for the benefits you previously got for free. The problem is there is little uniformity from airline to airline as far as what is included in the new fare. The main thing is seat assignment is not included across the board.
For domestic fares, I have decided not to post American and United fares as they don’t include free carry-on. Delta allows free carry-on, so going forward I will be posting Delta Basic Economy fares with a disclaimer that seat assignment is not included. We will continue to post American, Delta, and United international fares.
