United Airlines Revises Ticket Policies for Customers Traveling to or From London

CHICAGO, July 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — United Airlines (BULLETIN BOARD: UALAQ) today has revised its ticketing policies for travel to and from London Heathrow Airport. Effective immediately, these new policies apply to all customers ticketed on or before July 6, 2005, for travel through July 22, 2005, to or from London on any United, United Express and Ted or United code-share flight. To make these changes, passengers should call United’s reservations line at 1-800-241-6522 by midnight on their original travel date.

For customers currently en route who would like to return to their point of origin, all rules and restrictions regarding standard change fees, day or time applications, and/or minimum stay or Saturday night-stay requirements have been waived. Customers may make a change to their flight reservation on or before July 22, 2005 for any available flight to or from London.

Customers with unused tickets for travel within this time period may also reschedule their travel between the same origin and destination without a change fee. Rescheduled travel for the same itinerary must meet the same rule and booking code restrictions in order to guarantee the original fare. Rescheduled travel on flights and/or dates that do not meet the original restrictions may be subject to higher fares.

These policies also apply to any Mileage Plus tickets that meet these same date and itinerary guidelines.
