CheapOair Partners with American Airlines to Offer Customers More Choice CheapOair Staff August 19, 2013 Trending Stories 1 Comment CheapOair is helping customers tailor their travel plans with American Airlines’ Choice Essential and Choice Plus products, and Main Cabin Extras and Preferred Seating options. As the first major online travel agency to offer these products, CheapOair is taking the next step to offer you extra freedom and control over your travel plans. When booking tickets with American Airlines on CheapOair, you’ll be offered the following options: Choice Essential: No change fee, one free checked bag and Group 1 boarding. Choice Plus: No change fee, one free checked bag and Group 1 boarding, plus additional 50 percent AAdvantage mileage bonus, same-day flight change, same-day standby and a premium beverage. Main Cabin Extra: Seats in the front of the Main Cabin with up to six inches of additional legroom and Group 1 boarding. Preferred Seats: Seats more favorably located within the Main Cabin, such as exit rows and aisle seats. Aligned with CheapOair’s promise to help customers travel the world for less, the potential for saving with American Airlines’ added extras is great. For example, checking a bag on American Airlines is $35 each way, or $70 roundtrip. Mark Drusch, head of airline relations at CheapOair, suggests, “Passengers already checking a bag may wish to pay an additional $18 for Choice Plus. If their plans change for any reason, they’ll avoid a $200 fee to change their flight. In this case, the extra $18 can save a traveler $182.” CheapOair continues to provide added value for travelers looking for extras like priority boarding or the ability to change their plans at a moment’s notice, while at the same time being able to scan multiple airlines to find the best price. Now more than ever, CheapOair has solidified its position as a one-stop shop for all of your travel booking needs, giving you the ability to design your travel experience and get the most value out of your trip.
