Does anyone know where i can find out specifics about how and when you can add stopovers? I see in the fare rules on matrix that many times up to 2 stopovers are permitted etc. I also see that when flying international it lets me add a domestic flight prior to the international one at no cost. Is it only within 24 hrs? Any helpful article or something?

Thanks. What about domestic stopovers that i see are totally free when i try it on ITA? Is that because its within 24 hrs? For example when i fly to tlv from nyc im able to fly to bos 1st and then get the cheaper bos-tlv BF instead of the more expensive nyc-tlv. This doesnt cost anything.

Is there any way to waive the fee for unaccompanied minor? Frontier or delta would help. (Msp-phl 11/12-11/15 if someone is going...)

I had a suitcase wheel broken off by UA, on flight EER-VCE.
 The rep. is telling me that since VCE wasn't my final destination - I had a 3 day layover in VCE - and I flew TK to Israel, that according to their interline agreement, TK has to pay for the luggage, even though it broke on the UA flight.
Is this true, or DROPR ?

Seems like there's something off with this flight in the last week. A couple of delays and a diversion. Anything specific or just bad luck?

I am thinking of booking a paid trip but might have to cancel completely. On non-refundable fares, after paying the change fee, would I be able to get my money back or only a credit?

Assuming only a credit, any ideas if "cancel for any reason" travel policies might refund everything or only the penalty and I'd be left with the airline credits?

If you get a refundable fare, its refundable, back to your credit card.
Be sure to read the terms well, or get a TA, as there have been fares that are called 'refundable' that were not really refundable, after you read the fine print.

What is the route?
