Update: I called and tried to get UA to put me on the later flight. They wouldn't unless I paid the difference in fare, which is over $600. They said 50 minutes is considered enough time to connect, and I have 70 minutes.

It turns out I can book basic economy nonstop in each direction. By the time I pay for seats and checked bags, it will cost a few hundred more, and I will be in Basic Economy instead of Economy. Are there other differences I need to be aware of? Internationally, it doesn't seem like it is very different, assuming that I pay for my seats. I can still have a carry-on, etc. Is the only difference at that point boarding later?

Thank you so.much -- this has been very helpful. I am now running out of time. If I am going to cancel, I need to do so in the next couple of hours.
