Basic Economy fares on United only include one small personal item. A full-size carry-on bag is not allowed with United's Basic Economy and must be checked. United's regular Economy fares do include a full-size carry-on bag plus a small personal item. The first checked bag costs $30 each way for either type of fare.

Seat Assignments

Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for Basic Economy fares. You may pay a fee to choose a specific seat. Standard Economy fares include advanced seat assignments.

Alternate Fares

The routes listed to/from Portland and Salt Lake City are standard Economy. Other routes can be upgraded from Basic Economy to standard Economy for an extra charge. This charge can vary from just $35 each way to around $200 roundtrip, so it may or may not be worth it. This type of fare will include a full-size carry-on bag, advanced seat selection, and allow for ticket changes/upgrades. A checked bag is the same $30 fee each way.
