United cans fee for last minute award tickets!

A change to frequent flyer policy that won't totally enrage and annoy you?! Well I'll be a monkey's cankle!

United has announced that they will scrap (yes, we repeat, SCRAP) the fee for Mileage Plus Award tickets booked less than 21 days in advance. Look for the new rule to take effect July 30.

Can we expect more carriers to step up and shed annoying loyalty program fees? Stay tuned.
