During the last two days there have been rumors that United Airlines will soon start to charge for seat assignment. The airline is rumored to charge non-elite flyers for seats while Silver elites will be able to select a seat free of charge 24 hours before departure. Gold elites and above will be allowed to pick their seat at booking at no cost. Please note that this is only a rumor, confirmation is pending and no, it is not an April fools joke.
Is United starting to mock the Spirit Airlines model? In recent months United has imposed stricter carry-on policies as well as devalued their frequent flyer program.
