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.
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.
The routes listed 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.
