American – $256 (Regular Economy) / $206 (Basic Economy): San Diego – Miami (and vice versa). Roundtrip, including all Taxes


A good fare for nonstop service to and from Miami.

The regular fare at $256 allows for normal size carry-on and personal item in addition to advanced seat assignment.

The $206 fare is a Basic Economy fare. American’s Basic Economy fares do not allow for any advanced seat assignment. Rather, your seat assignment will be randomly assigned during check-in. In addition, normal size carry-on that does not fit under the seat is charged a $25 fee each way with applicable gate check fees (but free if you have an American co-branded credit card or if you have American elite status).
