United Airlines Change Fees are Gone
United Airlines is making a big change…for the better. To support you during your U.S. travels, they’ve decided to get rid of change fees for good, effective immediately. You can say goodbye to change fees on most Economy¹ and all premium cabin tickets when you travel within the U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
They are also extending the waiver for new tickets issued through December 31, 2020, to permit unlimited changes with no fee. This policy applies to all ticket types issued after March 3, 2020 and is valid for domestic and international travel.
And starting this January, they will be the only U.S. airline that will let customers with tickets of all fare types to fly same-day standby for free. Additionally, MileagePlus® Premier® members have even more flexibility and can confirm a seat on an earlier flight for no cost at all².
