United is now the final Big 3 legacy carrier to roll out Basic EconomyAmerican did so earlier this morning and Delta has had them in place for several years already . Obviously in an industry in which everyone follows the leader (mostly Delta), it's not surprising to see other legacy carriers trying the same techniques, even though each airline has implemented its own variation of what Basic Economy means. The other question is whether these Basic Economy fares, designed to compete with low-cost carriers such as Sprint and Frontier , will be lower than United's previous standard coach fares, or whether the cost of standard economy tickets will simply be increased. Additionally, it's also not clear whether United's new fares will actually be competitive with the low-cost carriers. While it's not a fair comparison since United is only flying Basic Economy on hub routes at the moment, here's a quick glance at all the airlines flying one-way from Minneapolis to Denver on April 18, the first day of United Basic Economy.

Watch the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro Replay on Red Bull TV: http://win.gs/VPP17 Byron Bay doesnt look much like the North Shore of Oahu, yet Soli Bailey somehow still seemed right at home. Start-to-finish in the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro, Bailey advanced through every heat without making too much noise, a silent assassin. He was consistent and smart in the lineup throughout the event, yet not many on the beach recognized his name as he paddled out for the Final. After his performance today, that'll no longer be a problem around these parts. Bailey’s well-rounded style and skill set lent itself to the shifting sands at Pipe perfectly, and it paid off in the Final. He came into the heat as an underdog, matched up against a fellow young gun in Griffin Colapinto as well as the experience of Bruce Irons and Adriano De Souza. He established a rhythm early and was first to strike, leaving the rest of the boys trying to catch up.
