Would you sacrifice your overhead bin for a lower fare? United Airlines is trying it | Airlines | Dallas News


United executives on Tuesday framed the new type of fare as a way for target customers “whose ideal flight means greater choice and lower price.”

“There’s no one-size fits all passenger. There shouldn’t be a one-size fits all flight,” United’s CEO Oscar Munoz said in a video officially announcing the new offering.

But while airline executives tout the flexibility and customization offered by these no-frills fares, for customers it might feel like a continued erosion of the minimum standard for air travel.

United’s basic economy product guarantees customers a seat on the plane and little else.

Seats are assigned at check-in, meaning those traveling in groups might not be next to each other. The fares include no ticket changes, no upgrade eligibility and basic economy passengers will board the plane last.
