IIRC, they were a fare basis where Coach may have meant prime time day flights and Thrift was for the lower fares on less desirable night flights or multi stop flights...
Not quite. On Pan Am, Thrift class was just economy class with no meal service. On routes with Thift Class (mainly SJU
if memory correct) it was offered on all flights. To/from SJU
there was no regular Y class during that period, only First and Thrift class. In 1969, the difference between Y and K class fares to HNL
was $10 each way.
