These fares to Fiji are a bargain, but note that they are only for basic economy. Economy Lite, which is Fiji’s basic economy, is the most bare-bones fare class — passengers are allowed one carry-on and receive inflight meals and entertainment. Passengers flying Economy Lite must pay additional fees to check baggage or select a seat.
Book these soon: At the time of publication, Fiji’s website showed these cheap seats were some of the last ones available.
If you want to select a seat, the prices start at $33 and go as high as $120 for the roomier seats located at the front of the aircraft.
Checked baggage also starts at $200 one-way, so you’ll end up paying an additional $400 if you bring luggage for a round trip.

Fiji’s Economy Lite class is somewhat restricted. However, you’re saving so much on airfare (even when you take into account the ancillary fees) that it’s still worth booking.
