United fans take note. It looks like the airline will be adding some booking fees for various award flights and might
be increasing the number of miles needed for Standard and Saver Award flights. The changes, it seems, will take place on
October 16, 2006.
You can view all the upcoming changes on United’s Awards page. But in an effort to
not upset everybody who now holds a gazillion miles, they are offerintg to cut the number of miles needed for various
short hall saver award flights. These are basically roundtrip tickets for getting your bad self between cities like San
Francisco and Seattle, Chicago and Washington-Dulles and others. To do these flights, you have to spend a mere 15,000
miles…whiich differs from the 25,000 miles they normally cost.
