United, American, Delta, Hawaiian, And Alaska Eliminate Change Fees!
Some of the largest US airlines have now eliminated change fees. Southwest being a pioneer in this, united decided it would be best after the pandemic. Less than 24 hours after this announcement, American, Delta, and Alaska all followed. We can expect jetBlue to do the same very soon. Although jetBlue has temporarily suspended change fees, we can expect them to do it permanently as soon as possible. Knowing that all their competitors already don’t offer change fees anymore. It’s crazy how our world flipped upside down. Change fees used to be hundreds of dollars, and now they’re free. It’s likely that we will not see this coming from Spirit, Frontier , or Allegiant. Mainly because they are low cost airlines, and order to make money, that’s some of the tricks that they use.
This will help the United States aviation market, as prices will get to be more competitive, and everything will be cheaper for us. This makes it easier for us to travel around, and see the world! Remember, all these change fees are permanently eliminated in the United States, but on international flights, they will still apply.
