Several major airlines said they were eliminating change fees on tickets for international flights.

The move began when American Airlines said it would no longer charge these fees last month.

Delta Air Lines and United Airlines both said on Wednesday that they would eliminate change most change fees for international tickets.

“No year has better demonstrated the value of flexibility than this one,” said Delta CEO Ed Bastian, comment on the action taken by his airline.

All three airlines eliminated change fees for domestic tickets back in August.

American said thatchange fees would no longer apply on changes to tickets for international long-haul flights when travel originates in North or South America, while Delta said the fees would no longer apply to travel from North America, and United said change fees would no longer apply to all international tickets purchased in the United States.

Basic-economy tickets would still be subject to fees in the event of a change in the itinerary, but such fees have been waived by all three airlines since March, although they haven’t been eliminated.
