Basic Economy fares have now spread across all 3 of the legacy carriers. American Airlines and United Airlines took a harsher path than Delta did, taking away even more benefits than Delta did. Is this the beginning or the end of the latest round of cuts customers will have to endure?
If you’re taller than me, you’re probably not going to like the latest changes the airlines are planning. Air travel is about to get a bit less comfortable for all of us. Given all the negative changes over the last few years, that almost doesn’t seem possible.
Now that Delta, American and United have Basic Economy fares, we have lots of questions. What if you purchased a basic economy fare from American Airlines and made a mistake, or changed your mind later? Are you stuck?
Just another thing to be careful about when it comes to Basic Economy fares. Now that the Big 3 are all in the pool when it comes to offering bare bones fares, here’s another pitfall to consider.
United Airlines and Delta both suffered major outages in the last two weeks, grounding planes and inconveniencing thousands of travelers. It’s time for them to make these episodes painful memories and not annual occurrences.
