Starting September 5, passengers who have booked Basic Economy fares will be allowed to bring one personal item and one carry-on item instead of only one personal item. With this change, all purchased fares will have the same cabin allowance.
American stated, “Basic Economy is working well in the markets where we offer it today. Customers benefit from our lowest fares that are competitive with no-frills carriers while experiencing American’s unparalleled network, better product and great customer service. Removing the carry-on bag restriction will make our short-haul Basic Economy fares more competitive with airlines that include a carry-on bag in their lowest fares.”
All other fare rules for Basic Economy will remain the same. For complete details, visit aa.com.
