Also got rid of 75 standbye fee if you want to leave earlier or later in the day. 

Excludes basic economy

If new flight is cheaper you do not get a refund; if the flight you change to us more expensive you pay the difference

Award tickets will still have a fee to redeposit them

Can we get some "expert" commentary why they would do this?
