American Airlines, United set fare caps


American Airlines and United Airlines are setting fare caps after ticket prices soared following President Trump’s travel ban from Europe.

In a statement provided to USA TODAY Thursday by Senior Manager of Corporate Communications Andrea Koos, the airline said they were issuing the caps on one-way flights “affected by the government-imposed travel restrictions.”

“We have capped our Main Cabin fares from Europe and the U.K. at a maximum of 799 EUR/GBP and fares from the U.S. have been capped at $1,000,” the statement read. “These fares include taxes and fees that are typically around $250 to $300 on transatlantic routes. We are also offering reasonably priced fares for our premium cabins on our trans-Atlantic routes.”

The fares are applicable for travel through March 24.

There are already limited seats on most flights due to the spring break holiday as Americans rush to figure out how to get home amid the coronavirus pandemic.
