American Airlines caps Europe fares after ban decree

American Airlines has placed
a cap on one-way economy ticket prices to and from Europe, including the U.K.,
following a rush to buy in the wake of the travel suspension decreed by
President Trump on Wednesday. 

The carrier has capped
economy fares from Europe and the U.K. at 799 euros and 799 British pounds,
respectively. Fares from the U.S. have been capped at $1,000. The caps are in
place for travel through March 24. The travel ban begins Saturday and applies
to foreign nationals who would be entering the U.S. from 26 mainland Europe
countries. 

American also said it is
offering “reasonably priced” fares in premium cabins. 

Delta, too, has capped its
Europe fares, though the carrier did not immediately provide details on
Thursday afternoon.

Also on Thursday, Delta waived
change fees through May 31 on Europe travel. Flyers may also cancel their
ticket and receive credit toward future flights booked by Dec. 31.

Delta and several other U.S.
carriers were already offering free changes on all booked flights, including
domestic, though the end of April.
