Rick Seaney says to go price your United tickets NOW:
A short time ago, United REMOVED its fuel surcharges in approximately 18,000 of its markets. Most of those fuel surcharges added $130 to the price of their airline tickets. The fuel surcharge is now ZERO.UPDATE 4PM EASTERN: United Spokesperson Robin Urbanski described this as a “clerical error” and said the fuel charges would be reinstated at 8pm Eastern time.
However, many of those “fixes” won’t be loaded until Midnight Eastern time, so you may have until then to get a very good deal.
So buy your tickets NOW and save as much as $130, before United reinstates the fuel surcharges.
