Starting in April 2018, American Airlines will
introduce Basic Economy on some trans-Atlantic flights.
options and restrictions for trans-Atlantic Basic Economy are
similar to those for domestic Basic Economy or for short-haul
international Basic Economy such as flights to Canada, although
there are a few differences. Here's a preview of how it will work:
Boarding: Trans-Atlantic Basic Economy customers, including
those originating with a domestic leg, will board in Group 8.
Elite customers and eligible AAdvantage credit card
members will continue to receive priority or preferred boarding
even when purchasing this fare.
Carry-on Bags: The carry-on
bag allowance for all international Main Cabin fares, including
trans-Atlantic Basic Economy, is one personal item and one larger
carry-on. This is unchanged from international Main Cabin fares
Checked Bags: Regular Main Cabin fares will continue to
include one checked bag for free. A new fee will apply for the
first checked bag on trans-Atlantic Basic Economy.
Connections: Customers flying on a domestic Basic Economy leg
connecting to a trans-Atlantic Basic Economy ticket will travel
under the rules of the international ticket, including the
carry-on bag allowance.
Inflight experience: Regardless of
whether they are traveling on a Basic Economy fare or a regular
Main Cabin fare, all Main Cabin customers will have the same
experience, including the same free entertainment, soft drinks,
snacks and meals offered today.
Seat assignments: Free seat
assignments are made automatically when customers check in.
Customers flying trans-Atlantic Basic Economy can purchase a seat
assignment at any time.
Tickets: Non-refundable. No same-day
flight change or same-day standby. However, the tickets are
changeable (for a fee), which is different from domestic Basic
Economy where changes are not allowed at all.
permitted, regardless of elite status level.
