Coach class fares fluctuaterna lot, so on any one flight there could be fares ranging from $59 torn$459. Obviously, the $59 does not have the same benefits as a $459rnticket, so they use different letters to designate this. The higher thernfare code, the more flexibility you get for changing your ticket,rncancelling your flight for a refund, getting an upgrade or even gettingrnmore frequent flier miles.

For example, Person A and Person Brnare both travelling on flight 928. Person A paid $513 and is travellingrnin "Y" class, and Person B paid $133 and is travelling in "H" class.rnThe person in "Y" class has a lot more flexibility. He can changernflights, get a full refund, might accruernmore frequent flier miles and has a better chance of getting upgradedrnto Business or First. The person in "H" class might have to pay a hugernfee to change his flight, will not get a full refund, will get 100% orrnless frequent flier accrual and has almost no chance of getting upgraded to first class.

Forrnmost people, those letters really don't matter. After all, there is arnhigh chance that Person A and Person B will sit right next to eachrnother on the plane. It really only matters to the airline staff.

This site explains different fare codes AA and other OneWorld partners use.

Thats the funny thing about economy fares. One guy could have paid £900 for his LHR-SFO and one guy £300 and there sitting together. The main difference is the flexability of the fare. The £900 will get access to join the execclub (with ba, full economy ybh are able to join) can change free and will get a refund with minor canx fee. The guy who paid less though could be in N class, low low economy. He cant change his booking at all, will only get taxes back if he cancels before dept, and will pay a canx fee. There are a few sites out there, and i have seen listings on here before of explinations of all the different fare classes, and what they mean

And on DL (domestic) the guy with Medallion status who paid $175 r/t on a "T" fare, could be sitting in first class next to a general member who paid $1300 for an "F" fare.  Smile
