American Airlines has recently joined Delta and United in offering a new type of low-cost, no-frills fare. While there are similarities between Basic Economy offerings, there are differences too.

Clear Program Expanding to New Airports

Airport security is the bane of many a frequent traveler’s existence, causing headaches, delays, and frustration. There are several programs available to make security go faster, including Clear. (For more information see the July issue of InSight.) Clear is a private trusted-traveler program that uses biometric identification to provide you a shortcut to the front of the security line. As of the end of last year, they were available in 18 airports. During the first quarter of this year, they are expanding to an additional five: New York LaGuardia, Atlanta, Los Angeles International Airport, and Minneapolis-St. Paul. This will bring the total to 22, including most of the heavily trafficked airports in the country.

If the $179 annual price seems steep, there are discounts available. Delta purchased a stake in Clear last year, and Skymiles members are offered substantial price breaks: Diamond Medallion customers receive a free annual membership, while Platinum, Gold, and Silver members pay $79, and general Skymiles members pay $99.
