Difference between UA economy and economy (flexible) in terms of points accrual?

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I just saw a really cheap UA fare to Hong Kong. The price is the same between UA economy and economy (flexible). They're both K-fares so I should get 50% of the mileage on OZ.

If I were to credit this to UA, I'm assuming I'll get 100% PQM and 50% RDM?

Slightly off-topic, besides the added flexibility of being able to cancel the fare, am I missing out on anything else? Guess it's a no-brainer to go with economy (flexible) if pricing is the same as economy?

Did UA introduced basic economy for trans-pacific flights yet?
