American Airlines, British Airways, Finnair & Iberia Unbundled Fares

During 2018, American Airlines, British Airways, Finnair and Iberia will together launch unbundled fares on selected routes between Europe and North America (and vice versa), offering even more choice for our customers.

For American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia, these fares will be called Basic and on Finnair they will called Light. Offering an alternative option to their bundled fares.  Basic/Light fares allow customers the choice to personalise their journey and only pay for the elements they require.

Customers purchasing Basic of Light fares will enjoy the same great service across their Economy cabins as those purchasing more expensive Economy cabin fare types, including in-flight means, a range of in-flight entertainment and complimentary headphones and blankets. Combined with their extensive transatlantic network, convenient flight times and award-winning loyalty programmes, these fares provide customers with even more options when travelling.

Their Basic and Light fares will not included checked baggage or choice of seat selection, instead allowing customers to choose to add these options individually should you wish to tailor the product to your needs.  A generous, carry-on baggage allowance, comprising of a carry-on and a personal item, and allocated seating at check-in will always be included. For customers preferring to include checked baggage and seat selection, the bundled fares provide the best value.  These fares are called Main on American Airlines, Standard on British Airways and Finnair and Optima on Iberia.
