Delta's Fare Basis Code Structure   

Delta's Fare Basis Code (FBC) structure has expanded to more markets and branded products, including our newest product Delta Premium Select.

Using the new FBC structure, corporate and agency partners may apply ticket designators to more branded products. Agency and Corporate incentives can now be easily applied to these branded products. Corporate Priority and recognition benefits will also apply.   

The new Fare Basis Code structure now applies to:

  • Most Domestic (U.S. and Canada) First Class F-Upsell fares. Please note: some First Class F-Upsell fares continue to use the WNUP static ticket designator.
  • Delta One® and Business fares in Latin, Pacific and Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA) markets, and to Delta One fares available on select cross-country flights, including between New York - JFK and Los Angeles (LAX) or San Francisco (SFO), between Washington Reagan (DCA) and Los Angeles (LAX), and between Boston (BOS) and San Francisco (SFO).
  • Delta Premium Select fares, now available on select international routes.
  • Delta Comfort+ as a fare product in the U.S. 50, Canada, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Caribbean, South America, Europe and select cities in Africa and Middle East (DKR/ACC/LOS/JNB/TLV), excluding EMEA and UK point-of-sale.
  • Basic Economy fares in U.S. 50, Canada, transatlantic, transpacific and Latin America markets. 

Please note: 

  • Delta Comfort+®  in Latin America and Caribbean markets fares for Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA) and Australia point-of-sale continue to use the static ticket designator WCOM. 
  • Markets using Delta’s Fare Basis Code Structure are subject to change without notice.

Identifying Branded Fares with New Fare Basis Code (FBC) Structure

Delta will use the second from the last character in the fare basis code regardless of the number of characters in the code to identify the branded product.   

All Fare Basis Codes are limited to no more than 8 characters. Domestic* markets typically use all 8 characters, while international markets may use less than 8 characters.
