Picked this gem up on Flyertalk.com. United has increased the domestic change fee from $100 to $150 dollars. As of now, no other carrier has matched this change. Fingers crossed that they do not. I can remember when the fee was $25 dollars. It has increased over time to $100 dollars. Some carriers charge less, and Southwest has never charged a fee to change your reservation to my knowledge.

This fee is one of the more annoying features of traveling with a “legacy” carrier. One hundred dollars is already excessive, and $150 is even more so. Fingers crossed that no one else picks this up, or it will stick.
