Continental Outlines New OnePass Fees; At Least There Are No Fuel Surcharges

Joining the ranks of just about everyone else, Continental has rolled out a few new changes for their OnePass program and you can probably guess that they won’t involve making it easier and cheaper to fly for free.

In short:

– No more holding reservations – you reserve, you purchase.  On a plus note, you have 24 hours to cancel.

– Fees to re-deposit miles or change a reward ticket are now $150.  Yes, those same fees used to be about $50.

– Want to book a reward ticket less than 21 days in advance?  That’ll cost ya $75.  For some reason, I find this one the most annoying.

– And Continental’s much beloved upgrade co-pays have increased (you can see the details in the link).

What can ya do?  It’s the new reality.  Or you can fly Southwest (though good luck getting a free business class ticket to Singapore on Southwest).
