With all the different classes just for economy, it gets quite confusing!
Has anyone actually flown using basic economy? It sounds like that limits seat selection, checked baggage, etc.
We are trying to decide to take the chance to book basic economy and hope the two of us get seats together. We usually just bring a carry-on, so checked baggage isn't a dealbreaker.
Is it worth it to just 'upgrade' for a few hundred dollars just to have the ability to pick seats? I assume that economy and basic economy are the same seats, and you don't get a little larger seat unless you move to premium economy.
We are looking at Delta or United.
