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.
– 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).
