  • DO NOT allow for advance seat assignment
  • DO NOT include checked bags – they are $60 each way for the 1st bag and $100 for the 2nd
  • DO NOT allow for changes
  • DO NOT allow for cancellations – so if you cancel after the 24 hour risk free period, the Basic Economy version will have no value for future travel
  • Most online travel agencies are not displaying Air France / KLM Royal Dutch Basic Economy / Economy Light fares as such.
