So United is moving to dynamic pricing...  wonderful...

Atleast it appears that their partner award chart will remain the same for the foreseeable future...

Seems like it's a huge deval...

The extent of it will remain to be seen although it's definitely a step in the wrong direction for us.

And so much for United.

  So we're left with ba and IB for last minute flights? (Even that was cut in half.)

adding 1 more article to the mix.

I wonder what that will do to the Excursionist Perk and Plan B.

It's a sad day for United. They might regret this in the future.

IMHO, blogs keep pumping miles an cc's enough that airlines feel safe enough removing award charts. Such as the case with  delta, huge sign up bonuses even when the actual points have a low value still drive people to use them.

So award charts for partners are still here? That's ok for now....
