Flying American Airlines just got a bit more affordable.On Wednesday, the world’s largest airline released details of its upcoming low-cost basic-economy fare class.”American Airlines now has something to offer every customer, from those who want simple, low-price travel to those who want an ultra-premium experience via first class,” American Airlines President Robert Isom said in a statement.According to Isom, the new fare class is designed to put American in a better position to compete against the increasing presence of ultra-low-cost carriers.Unfortunately, buying the cheapest ticket also means you’ll have to do without many of the amenities that have traditionally been considered obligatory in modern air travel.
