UNITED PLANS TO DECREASE FIRST CLASS UPGRADE FEES AT AIRPORT LOCATIONS

UNITED PLANS TO DECREASE FIRST CLASS UPGRADE FEES AT AIRPORT LOCATIONS
 CHICAGO, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines announced today it has decreased the price it charges at airport locations for kits of certificates to upgrade from coach to first class on its flights.
 The fees at airport locations have been decreased for a kit of four 500-mile certificates from $80 to $60 and for four 1,000-mile certificates from $140 to $100 effective immediately. The reduced fees at airport locations thus have become identical to fees currently charged for purchases by mail or at United's city ticket offices.
 United also said it is making first class more accessible for its passengers by doubling the first-class cabin on all of its 54 Boeing 757-200 aircraft from 12 to 24 seats by early spring.
 The carrier also said it will postpone indefinitely its previously announced plans to boost its charges for purchased upgrades effective Feb. 1. United cited the recessionary economy for this decision.
 The purchased upgrades are popular among business travelers, affording them the comforts and amenities of first-class travel for a nominal investment above coach. The certificates are valid for travel within the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda.
