United Increases Change Fee

If you want to change your tickets on United Airlines, it will start to cost you more.

The airline has increased its domestic and Canadian destination change fee to $200 from $150 on its cheapest tickets. On South American routes the fee goes from $250 to $300. For Asia and Europe, it stays at $250.

So far, all of the other major airlines have stayed at $150 but only time will tell if they too increase their fees. Southwest doesn’t charge a ticket change fee.


Addendum:  4/24/13—US Airways has raised their fees to match United.

I don't know what the prices are for tickets in the US but could this mean it would be cheaper to cancel (lose the original money) and rebook afresh than change a ticket?
