United & Atlantic Joint Venture partners to introduce new trans-Atlantic fare option

Effective from June 5, 2018, United Airlines in line with Atlantic Joint Venture partners Air Canada and Lufthansa Group, will introduce a new fare option for customers traveling between the United States or Canada and select European countries in specific lower Economy booking classes. Created for our customers who may be more price-sensitive, these lowest-priced fares are the first step towards a Basic Economy product on trans-Atlantic United flights. The fare includes the same inflight experience as standard United Economy but with important restrictions that you'll want to review carefully before booking. Fare conditions: ·         Does not include a free baggage allowance for checked baggage. ·         Non-refundable and non-changeable except as stated in the United 24-hour flexible booking policy. ·         Cannot be combined with any other fare type. ·         Not eligible for upgrades to a premium cabin (complimentary, purchased or instrument). Customers purchasing this fare for travel ticketed and operated on United will be eligible for advance seat assignments, one standard carry-on bag and one personal item, and the same United Economy cabin experience and services, including dining options, Wi-Fi for purchase and inflight entertainment.
