United eliminates many co-pays for elite members within continental US/Canada

As of May 20, United has eliminated co-pays for elite members on all fares within the continental US, Alaska, and Canada. Even Premium Service flights will have the co-pays eliminated for elites. Non-elites traveling on the same reservation as elites will also be exempt from the co-pays.

This is a very nice change. I’m a bit surprised to see Premium Service included here, though I guess that’s a function of them not filling up business class on many flights anymore since they’re not eligible for unlimited domestic upgrades.

And of course Continental might have something to do with this as well…
