American / British Airways / Finnair / Iberia’s $643 fare is a regular economy fare with ONE check bag and normal size carry-on included
American / British Airways / Finnair / Iberia also have a $493 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 $75 each way for the 1st bag and $100 for the 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 travel
Most online travel agencies are not properly displaying these fares with American / British Airways / Finnair / Iberia as BASIC ECONOMY.
