Can you make more than one change with this waiver?

Generally, after you make a change, the present waiver will not apply -- but perhaps you can provide more on what you have in mind.

Aaahhh, the joys of winter travel. I checked my flight earlier for my seat number and saw the waiver notice. ORD-EWR early Monday morning flight. If this flight doesn’t leave on time, it won’t be worth it to travel as I was scheduled to fly back Tuesday. I’ll be more productive from home then sitting at the airport for hours waiting for a flight to finally depart. Plus, I’d rather not make it out east only to get caught with delays when it’s time to come back. May just take this as an unused ticket for another time.

Call TA first as there are TA waiver code at jetstream, you will have to call UA if you want to switch over to non-ua flight.

Doesn't sound like the snow will come in till later in the day tomorrow. Hopefully won't disrupt travel too badly.

It you switch from outside the waiver to inside the waiver period, expect some issue with then trying to use the waiver. UA has added a comment about purchase date this year, so they are tracking that issue,

The forecast has changed not seeing any snow today say NYC and BOS yet you scared people into changing from Sunday to Monday when weather will be worse but not terrible. So you should fly today which is a busy day. Weather is not an exact science.

Snerk. I find the use of weather and science in the same sentence laughable. Especially when trying to time a flight.

International flight to EWR, landing midday Monday. Fingers crossed that actually happens.

Check the inbound. Most INTL flights fly right back to the US right arrival at the international destination. If it is already in the air now to where you are scheduled to fly tomorrow, then your chances would be better. Good luck.
