Thanks for that, I hadn't realised they had increased the fees. BA (and most other oneworld airlines) allow for a discounted online purchase in advance. AA does not offer this, in fact pre-payment is only offered on certain domestic services on AA, and only via the OLCI or App process too - this isn't directly related to Basic fares. Because of these limitations they can't really offer a discount.
