Breaking: United Award Chart Devaluation Begins February 3rd

Update: UA Insider on FlyerTalk confirms the delay in this post

The much-dreaded United award chart devaluation looks to be temporarily postponed until February 3rd.

Back in late October, United announced that they would be increasing the mileage costs of many awards, especially those flow in premium cabins.

United would also be splitting their award chart on February 1, 2014. Business and first class itineraries containing segments on Star Alliance partners would increase drastically in price in many regions, especially to areas like Europe and Central Asia.

Though February 1st was trumpeted as the first day of this new and more expensive award chart, it appears February 3rd is the new day these increases will take place. Both the new United and Star Alliance award charts have been changed to reflect the new date. The screenshots are below:
