sold on a regular UA 016 ticket stock credited to UA? you get 5x dollar amount for RDM, 7x/8/9/11... for premier members. should be 100% PQM (unless basic economy, which is not true for transpacific flights yet)

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?
this happens because the same fare is both flexible and cheapest (no cheaper fare than this). usually flexiable means its refundable/changeable for a fee

Did UA introduced basic economy for trans-pacific flights yet?
no(t yet)
