Delta, American Airlines drop change-flight ticket fee

Associated Press has reported Delta and American Airlines have joined United in dropping USD 200 change-flight ticket fee, the news source said.

The moves come as airlines try desperately to lure people back to flying. Although air travel has recovered slightly since April, it is still down sharply.

Normally in summer, 2 million or more people pass through security checkpoints at US airports each day. That number hasn´t been above 900,000 since the early days of the pandemic in mid-March. But in dropping change fees, airlines are abandoning a lucrative extra.
