And since it's basic economy quite possibly in middle seat. Or is AA's version of BE more lenient than UA?
I believe you earn miles with both AA/DL.

It's UA that tries to screw you over and force you to pay more for elite miles.

Haven't searched for fares in a little while, but last time I did, both AA and DL offered BE to Canada, while UA did not.

Hm, UA normally just copies whatever DL does, so I was guessing no earning

Guess UA knows I would find midweek flights with empty cabins if they allowed mileage accrual. OK, good for you, now it makes more sense (to me).

LHR-SEA (August UK school holidays) on Air France

Adult = £402pp
CHildren under 16 = £332pp

Out = 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15 August

Return = 20, 21, 27, 28, 29 August

Book AirFrance.com. Hand baggage fare, so pay a bit extra if you want to check in a suitcase.

Family (2adults and 2kids) = £1556 with one checked bag.

i’ve booked And been confirmed.

its a new AF route, hence must be the reason for the cheap prices.
