Will United refund Basic Economy tickets because of the current situation?
Does anyone know whether United will refund Basic Economy tickets because of the current COVID-19 situation – if cancelled before May 31st? Looking at their relevant web-page, it does not say that it will not. Anyone had experience with that? Thank you
United will refund basic economy ticket only if United cancels the flight .

I think that I didn’t correctly ask my question. I meant getting a travel certificate for the full value of the basic economy ticket.
Actually I have just talked to them (UA) and they said that their current waiver states that any ticket can be cancelled before May 31 to get either a refund (refundable ticket) or a travel certificate (everything else, including basic economy).
