SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- If United Airlines is your choice when flying then you may want to know they are making big changes to their frequent flier program.

Right now awards are based on the number of miles traveled, but going forward they'll be based on the cost of the flight.

This will benefit the biggest spenders, people who buy last minute flights and first-class seats.

But it's not good news for price conscious fliers.

Other carriers like JetBlue and Southwest have already made the switch to rewards based on flight cost.
