United Continental Holdings Inc will become the first major U.S. airline to limit low-fare customers to one carry-on bag that fits under a seat, and it will defer dozens of aircraft deliveries from Boeing Co in an array of initiatives to boost profit, the company said Tuesday.United said customers who buy its cheapest fares will not be assigned seats until the day of departure, meaning people on the same ticket may be split apart.Delta and United hope to lure customers with cheap fares and upsell them once they reveal the conditions of the ticket.United said it will grow flight capacity between 1 percent and 2 percent in 2017 from a year earlier.
