Shed a little light into their thinking - I hadn't really considered that AS had already been competing with basic economy and just not calling it something else. Doesn't make me really any less salty about having to pay extra for my benefits... but still, I guess I appreciate them trying to communication with us an explain their thinking - even if it is just a corporate message - it's always easier to say nothing so they but an effort into this.

But yeah, basically the way they launched Saver Fares, we didn't know if they'd be the existing floor (as it turned out to be) or a newer lower fare. And we were left to ourselves to make figure out that Saver Fares were basically just a method to charge us more for our benefits.

Now, if they'd told us that in advance, would we be any happier? I doubt it
