 In order to seize the passenger flow, United Airlines will permanently cancel the domestic flight change fee


Now, the temporary exemption from ticket change fees will apply permanently to all standard economy class and premium class tickets (except for basic economy tickets), but the difference will be borne. At the same time, United Airlines will extend the exemption period of the new crown free change fee to all tickets issued before December 31.

Another change is that, starting on January 1, United will allow passengers to register for alternate seats free of charge on different flights that land in the same city on the same day. That is to say, from January 1, all passengers can stand by on the same day for free, and can change for free as long as there is a seat available before the flight takes off. Generally speaking, if there is a change of flight on the same day, it will cost US $75.

Airlines spend millions of dollars a day because of the pandemic, but we agree that restoring customer confidence and providing travel flexibility will be the key to encouraging people to start again and paving the way for a return to profitability, said Scott Kirby, chief executive of United Airlines

CNBC believes that the move of United Airlines may increase the pressure on competitors to make similar policy adjustments.
