Winnipeg to Boston - $269 CAD roundtrip including taxes | but a warning about Delta fares


United Airlines and Delta have dropped the price of their flights from Winnipeg to Boston down to $269 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

The flights have 1 stop each way.

But a warning about Delta fares from now on:

Delta is now offering what they call 'Basic Economy' fares on this route (and many other domestic routes). Think of this as a level below what used to be just called Economy (if you can imagine).

Delta no longer allows you to select a seat before check-in. You will be assigned seats after check-in or at the gate, unless you 'upgrade' to Economy.

In your head, you should now automatically add $31.50 CAD to all of Delta's roundtrip prices that you see online when searching, to compare fairly against other airlines.

If you do care about being able to select your seat in advance, which I'm sure many do, you should think of these Delta flights to Boston as being $300.50 CAD roundtrip including taxes, for an economy flight.

Unless you don't care about being able to select your seat in advance. In which case, you might actually be saving money on some Delta flights from now on. Delta.com makes it very clear when you are booking a Basic Economy fare (giant pop-up). Other websites may be less clear.

United Airlines is also offering Basic Economy fares on routes from the U.S. So far, they have not implemented them on routes from Canadian cities.
