carryon fee on international flights?

I apologize if this been asked and answered. We travel with carryon only these days. I read that the big 3 airlines will begin charging for carryons if they need to go in the overhead bins. Will this apply to international flights? Thank you.

Have you looked on the websites for the airlines in question?

As far as I know, the rules in effect when you buy your tickets apply unless they state otherwise at the time of purchase.

Thank you confusing with some domestic airlines are doing with different fares for people who are willing to give up their carry-on space. These are special fares and would be noted as such when you purchase them whether online or on the phone. I haven't seen any information if this would ever be true for international flights

They are offering the option of bare bones fares where you pay extra for everything.

AFAIK there are no plans by the legacy carriers to charge for carry-ons on regular international tickets.

"Basic Economy" is the new fare class that imitates on the legacy airlines what the Low-Cost-Carriers have been doing all along, charging a basic fare to which you add the cost of whichever of the extras you need - bags (carry-on above a minimal size or checked), assigned seats, food, early boarding etc.

So know what type of ticket you're buying, to what that ticket entitles you, and spend time reading each airline's website, things are changing all the time, one airline at a time.
