bec they may not update it
Don't they update it every week? Why would they not update it this week?
And which aspect would be killed exactly?  Couldn't use always book via an OTA even if UA.com blocks it?

No expert here, but most pundits are predicting it to keep falling. Some are saying 100+.

I would suggest a compromise; Somewhat dilute or change the excitement of the title and attract less attention.

We can monitor the drop in Rubles without saying anything about tickets etc.

The lower it drops, the bigger saving people will know they can find.

This has to do with the actual value of the Ruble to the USD. The other link i believe is a different thing entirely.

I know it's the wrong thread but... What's UA cancellation fee? Worth canceling and rebooking with this for a $200 saving?

You already have a ticket with UA? When was it booked? Asking more than 24 hours ago it won't be worth it
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

I searched for hotels. The rates don't seem much different than what I'm seeing elsewhere.
