I am hoping to get on a United nonstop where now I am on a connection where the first flight is United but the second is a star alliance carier. Thank you.
That is how I read it. Wonder how it is in practice. I don't believe it mentioned before or after March 3, it just mentioned any change of carrier would incur a fee. I am the same way. Was possibly looking for more direct flights, but guess that will save me the time of spending countless hours on the search. I will just keep what I have.
