Delta, United Permanently Eliminate International Change Fees

Delta Air Lines and United Airlines announced that they'll be permanently eliminating change fees for flights across the globe on Wednesday.

Delta will waive its $200 international change fee for any flight originating in the U.S., or between the U.S., Mexico, and the Caribbean going forward, including for codeshare flights, according to their announcement. Basic economy fares, however, are excluded.

The new policy comes months after the airline eliminated change fees for most ticket categories on flights within U.S. states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
