JetBlue includes standard advanced seat assignments. Alaska Airlines includes limited seat selection at the back of the plane. Southwest has an open seating policy where you choose your seat as you board the aircraft. On American, Delta, and United, seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for these Basic Economy prices. You may be able to pay a fee to choose a specific seat.
Fares on Alaska, American, Delta, and United can be upgraded to a standard Main Cabin Economy fare for around $70 extra roundtrip on most routes and dates. This is not a set upgrade fee and certain markets and/or travel dates may be less or much more to upgrade. This type of fare includes advanced seat selection and allows ticket changes/upgrades for a fee. On United, this type of fare will allow a full-size carry-on bag whereas a Basic Economy fare does not on United. All other carriers include a normal carry-on bag for both basic or regular economy. The first checked bag fee is the same $30 each way for both basic and regular economy.
