American Airlines Two-Fer on UK Fares: Another Sign of Weakening Trans-Atlantic Market

In another sign of growing concern among airlines about the softening trans-Atlantic market, American Airlines is offering a free companion ticket for travel later for customers who fly between the U.S. and the U.K. before the end of the year. The offer is restricted to purchasers of first-class, business class and higher-priced coach seats (Y, B or H).

This is another small tick in a story to watch. The trans-Atlantic markets are glutted with capacity, and a fare free-for-all is brewing until it all shakes out.
