United Airlines Partner Awards Switching to Dynamic Pricing as Well

United Airlines announced earlier this year that it would get rid of its award chart and move to a dynamic pricing model. The switch will happen on November 15th. At the time it was said that awards on partner carriers in the Star Alliance such as Lufthansa and Air Canada will remain on a tiered system for now. But, Luc Bondar, head of MileagePlus, confirmed that the airline is also exploring the use of dynamic pricing on those fares.

Now their FAQ page on the website has quietly changed, and it points at a dynamic chart for partner awards as well. The transition will happen on the same date, November 15th. Here’s what the website states now regarding partner awards:

The partner award chart will remain in effect for travel through November 14, 2019. For travel on or after November 15, 2019, there may be flights that require a higher number of miles than the amounts indicated on the award chart. When you search for awards while booking, you’ll see the applicable award level.
