We’re getting rid of change fees
The only thing constant is change and at United Airlines, some of the fees associated with changes related to flying are gone for good. The carrier announced that it is permanently getting rid of change fees, effective immediately. The new change fee policy applies to all standard Economy and Premium cabin tickets for travel within the U.S. 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands and customers will not be limited in the number of times they adjust their flights.
