Air France unveils cooling off period for economy passengers
Air France is putting its money where its mouth is in the battle against no frills carriers. For a charge of €10 it will allow passengers booking economy tickets on European flights to hold their reservations for ten days. This will enable them to search for a cheaper deal elsewhere. It gets over the problem, encountered by many travellers, of finding a fare that looks attractive, checking what a couple of other carriers are offering - and then finding that the price they looked at first has increased. The French airline will also allow passengers on such flights to request an aisle or window seat without charge. British Airways please note.
