I need a reminder on how United status works lol. I’m 1K, so if I buy basic economy (x2 for myself and gf) do I still get to bring x1 carry on/x1 small bag per person, x2 undercarriage bags, and get upgraded? I feel like I did this before and I was like automatically upgraded to “normal” economy rules but idr. I should be able to apply my status to everyone in my party too right?

Idk about United but on delta basic economy means no carry on and no upgrades. Yourself and a backpack/purse, and that’s it, and a randomly assigned seat

Yea that’s the same on United but I think that’s not the case if you have status, can’t remember tho

As annoying as TPG is: https://thepointsguy.com/guide/how-to-survive-basic-economy-on-united-airlines/amp/#does-having-elite-status-help
