American Airlines has “Basic Economy” round-trip flights from New York (EWR) to San Francisco (SFO) starting at $118, NONSTOP. $59 each-way. Flights January to mid-April. A few weekends available. Holiday Blackouts apply. “Regular Economy” fare is +$50 more.

Note: “Basic Economy” fares do not include a free carry-on bag. Only a personal item (like a small-backpack) is free. Checked bags cost +$25 each-way. Seats are randomly assigned prior to boarding. If you have an AAdvantage credit-card you can avoid bag fees.

Note: You can select between “Regular Economy” and “Main Cabin” at the Priceline or Travelocity check-out screen. See screenshot below.

I was able to pull this fare up on Priceline. Screenshot taken at 12:57 PM CT on 12/11/17.


Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.
