If Plat or above, United is AWESOME! ^ No close-in fees, no change fees, no redeposit fees, no reservation fees, nothing. If you've got a lot of award miles, and you can hit 75k eqm, United is the place to have them.

For what it's worth, that was the entire reason for me doing a pair of SFO-CDG red-eye mileage runs in December. Hopefully I'll make it pay off. Can't see that I'll re-qualify for Plat in 2013 though, and *G on United isn't feeling the love these days.
