American Airlines, known for its ultra-low fares and lavish perks, has announced a major new upgrade program for all of its U.S. customers.
Starting July 10, American Airlines will begin charging a $25 per-trip surcharge for any ticket purchased over $50,000.
That means American will begin issuing tickets for less expensive flights in August for all eligible U.K. and Australian customers.
The airline will also offer a discount for customers who purchase tickets from a U.A. affiliate.
American will also be offering new loyalty programs for U.M. customers, starting in July.
The company says the new fees are intended to attract more loyal customers, particularly those traveling from the United States.
The new fare is the latest step toward the airline’s new plan to expand its U,S.
It’s also part of a wider restructuring that the airline says it is working on.
American Airlines says it has over 200,000 domestic and international customers in the U.s., and its global reach is growing at a record pace.
It says the expansion is an opportunity for American to continue to grow its international customer base.
