If you buy a Basic Economy ticket, yes. For the other 90% of tickets sold, no they do not.
So you think only 10% of the pax on your next UA flight is paying basic?
Truth be told, there is not alot difference between the main carriers and LCC cheap tickets product.
As regards Allegiant, try them out folks. I was nervous because of some of the comments I read on this board. When you board its just like any other flight you have been on and yes, I have seen pax flying on business using them. And you fly them out of Austin, you get the avoid the zoo called the main terminal and step back in time and fly out of the cool South Terminal.
Helluva lot closer to 10% than the 100% that was implied.
South Terminal at AUS is a nightmare if there is no parking available or you’re unaware that your airline operates there. The terminal is on the opposite side of the airfield from the main terminal and most parking. Shuttles from the main terminal to the South Terminal run, at most, every 20 minutes.
