A good sale to Paris

Air Canada is running a $50 off sale to Europe. The price without the discount is $547 (Basic Economy) / $697 (Regular Economy). But if you using the promo code “F32EF8B1” at the search screen, you will get this for $547 (Basic Economy) / $647 (Regular Economy) – so you will only save $50 on the regular economy fare.

United and its partners Air Canada, Austrian, Lufthansa and Swiss Air’s $647 fare is a regular economy fare with ONE checked luggage and normal size carry-on

United and its partners Air Canada, Austrian, Lufthansa and Swiss Air also have a $547 fare, but it is a Basic Economy / Economy Light fare. These Basic Economy / Economy Light fares:

  • DO NOT allow for advance seat assignment

  • DO NOT include checked bags – they are $70 each way for the 1st bag and $100 each way for 2nd

  • DO NOT allow for changes

  • DO NOT allow for cancellations – so if you cancel after the 24 hour risk free period, the Basic Economy version will have no value for future purchase

  • Most online travel agencies are not properly displaying these fares with United / Air Canada / Austrian / Lufthansa / Swiss Air as BASIC ECONOMY
