AA extended so I would expect UA and DL to also extend. Maybe even beyond July.

AA actually removed the 'Bought your ticket on or before June 30, 2020' condition. So as things are laid out on their page right now, you can book a ticket on Sept 30 for same day travel, and can still get a free change.

Looks like no-change-fees was extended last on May 28... seeing as it's now June 29 any bets on whether they'll extend again? I haven't searched exhaustively but seems like no word yet from any of the majors.

Has the change fee waiver been extended past June 30 yet? I don't see anything about it on UA web site. One more day to go.

If there is to be an extension, there's no evidence on the website or via their social media.

Generally, there isn't until there is. Best just to check links like this over the next two days. Or subscribe to this thread.

I think both parties will wait until the last min

Well, if it's anything like the GS extension game, I'm guessing not very well.

Sadly, I suspect that _multiple_upon_multiple_ cost benefit analyses are being run at this very hour through the rest of the night at Elk Grove and/or Willis.

Note the UA 30 June date applies to
-- free changes / cancellations of older bookings
-- changes in the future for new purchases

The above DL waiver appears to only be for new purchases, not older purchases.

also appears to be just new purchases
