That must be the only way. They are making me crazy as I am flying from EWR to ASU and then returning MAO to OGG with a 8 month stopover in EWR (!!) and the flight from MAO to EWR connects in PTY then SJU and I want to switch it to PTY- POS - EWR and they are making me nuts. Someone even told me that the ticket is invalid because I cannot go to OGG after EWR and they are doing me a favor and honoring it but that is it no changes.

It is the same airlines.

My ticket was notated not to allow any changes as it is technically 20,000 miles short of the requirements per ticket, and they therefore did not want to reissue it so I HUCA'd about 8 times yesterday and finally got my change. Each call was a good 45 minutes to an hour.

Ok, I'm about to book a United award ticket for departure in less than 21 days.
Can I still use the trick to avoid the $75 close-in fee? Book for a latter time and then change to th correct date?
Does it still work?
