United’s Mileage Plus frequent flyer members can now enjoy a last-minute trip without paying the standard last-minute booking fee.

 Effective July 30, 2009, the fee to book a frequent flyer award ticket within 21 days of departure will be eliminated.

“Our members have told us that they want ease, flexibility and availability when using their miles, and we are listening,” said Robert Sahadevan, vice president – Mileage Plus. “Being the first airline to eliminate the last-minute booking fee will make it easier for our members to use their miles, and it is one of the many steps we are taking to make Mileage Plus the most rewarding loyalty program for them.”

Prior to this change, the fee to book an award ticket for travel within six days was $100 and for travel within seven to 20 days was $75.
