We strongly encourage our readers to refrain from non-essential travel these next few weeks. Due to COVID-19 we will only feature fares that have availability for travel from January 2021 onward. We will continually assess if that needs to move to an even later date.
A good sale to Aruba.
The regular economy fare at $300 allows for a normal size carry-on and a personal item in addition to advanced seat assignment.
The $240 fare is a Basic Economy fare. United’s Basic Economy fares do not allow for any advanced seat assignment. Rather, your seat assignment will be randomly assigned during check-in. In addition, normal size carry-on that does not fit under the seat is charged a $35 fee each way (but free if you have an United co-branded credit card or if you have United elite status).
