More airlines add hand-baggage only fares and now United Airlines will offer this tier on its trans-Atlantic flights. Lufthansa is expected to follow.
United will introduce the fares on some trans-Atlantic and Latin American routes later in 2018. Lufthansa, operating a joint venture with United, will likely have to do the same, rolling out across Europe.

“We too are deliberately considering this [HBO fares]. It is an issue that is being discussed within Lufthansa Group. So far no decision has been taken, but I expect this [the decision] sooner rather than later.”
