Then late last month I wrote that American would be changing the fare class of domestic 2-cabin first class from F to J as part of its move to free up fare buckets to sell the new premium economy cabin.
Here’s detail of their plan: (Click to enlarge.)
So here’s what this means.
- F was full fare first class. That becomes J on 2-cabin domestic flights. (It’s business class on American’s premium transcon flights.)
- A was confirmed upgrade space. That becomes D on 2-cabin domestic flights.
- P was discount first class. That becomes I on 2-cabin domestic flights.
There’s going to be a schedule change and when it runs tickets will be reissued.
