UNITED PROTECTS TRAVEL AGENT COMMISSIONS ON 50 PERCENT OFF SALE FARES

UNITED PROTECTS TRAVEL AGENT COMMISSIONS ON 50 PERCENT OFF SALE FARES
 CHICAGO, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines announced today it will protect the commissions of travel agents who are rebooking travel for already ticketed customers wanting to take advantage of the current popular 50 percent off sale fares.
 United today told travel agents that in order to keep their full commissions on reissued VE7NR tickets, the agents should claim zero commission on the refund exchange notice being used for the exchange.
 For commission protection on tickets already reported by agents through the Airline Reporting Corp. (ARC) clearinghouse for sales reports, agents have been asked by United to submit a sales summary adjustment.
 United also said in light of the heavy volume of booking activity taking place it has removed the requirement to ticket passengers within 24 hours of their making a reservation on these fares. The VE7NR booking now must be ticketed by midnight Sunday, June 7, and at least seven days in advance of travel.
 The airline also said that until midnight Sunday, June 7, the ticketing process will be simplified for those exchange transactions that involve a change in the passenger's itinerary. The additional ticket re-issue step will no longer be required. Instead, United instructed travel agents to simply rebook the passenger in the new "V" class segment and exchange the original ticket for the new ticket using the refund exchange notice.
 United said the $25 administrative charge and other fare rules still apply. United will waive the tariff rules requiring a new ticket reissue for those itineraries that have changed travel dates.
