A couple of weeks ago, we told you about a new Chrome extension that adds legroom to Google Flights search results. At the end of the post, we called for Google Flights to add a filter for basic economy. While we are still waiting for that call to be answered, the creator of Legrooms for Google Flights has stepped up to help.

In the newest version of the app, you’ll see if a fare has restrictive carry-on baggage policies right in the search results:

Legroom for Google Flights basic economy tag

This is a great way to see at a glance which options to potentially avoid if you’re not loyal to just one airline.

For those without status, remember that your co-branded airline card can defeat the no-carry-on restrictions with the legacy carriers. So, seeing the no bags logo might only mean that you don’t get to pre-select your seat at this price, as your co-branded card will get you a checked bag and a carry-on bag as well.

For low-cost carriers — such as Frontier and Spirit — you’re always going to see the no bags logo.

If you’ve already downloaded the extension, it should update automatically. For those who haven’t added the extension, you can do so here. It’s a one-and-done task that takes less than a minute to set up and will change all of your Google Flights results going forward.
