Flying on American Airlines is about to get cheaper -- which is great. But that's only happening if you're willing to sacrifice the basic comforts (if you can call them that) of economy class for what's been dubbed as "no frills" fares.
Starting next year, the world's largest airline will take on budget carriers like Spirit and Frontier by offering cheaper fares on select flights, company executives said on a recent earnings call. As you might have guessed, the reduced fares will come with reduced service, such as no snacks during the flight and less seat selection, according to a report by Mashable. Other than that, the company wouldn't elaborate on what exactly the "deal" will entail, but some have speculated you'll get less legroom and might have to pay additional fees for luggage.
