United Airlines permanently removes change fees within the US


SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — United Airlines announce Sunday it is permanently removing change fees within the United States.

Effective immediately, the airline will be removing changing fees on all standard Economy and Premium cabin tickets for travel in the country.
