“For customers currently traveling to, from, and through these states affected by the winter storms who would like to make one change to their return trip, rules and restrictions regarding standard change fees, advance purchases, day or time applications, blackouts and minimum or maximum stay requirements have been waived.
Customers who have not begun travel to, from, and through these states affected by the winter storms may make one change to their travel plans without change fees or advance purchase requirements for the same itinerary. For a new itinerary, they can make one change without change fees. United advises customers to log on to united.com to make a change to their itinerary. Rescheduled travel may be subject to higher fares if it does not meet original rule and booking-code restrictions or is a new itinerary.
Customers with canceled flights are eligible for a full refund. Call 1-800-UNITED-1. Stay home! —MEGHANN MARCO
