Flight-change fees eliminated

This item appears on page 5 of the October 2020 issue.

Major US airlines Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines all announced in late August and early September that they will be permanently eliminating ticket change fees in most airfare classes.

The airlines differ regarding the seating classes and air routes where change fees will not be charged. For the most part, passengers on international flights to non-North American countries and/or in the lowest fare classes will still be subject to change fees. Check with your carrier for details.
