Do I have to wait for it to be ticketed in order to do the trick, or I can call in as soon as I complete the booking?
Hint: Online

Thanks.
Just worked for me for a last minute ticket. Easy, 1 2 3...
3 hours prior to departure I looked up for 2 saver seats, booked for next month, PUTPAC'd, changed, done. Took around 5-7 minutes.

Just wondering, card was charged just $5, receipt says $5, but under my reservations it says: Service Fee - $300.00
                                                                                                                                                     Additional taxes/fees - $5.00
                                                                                                                                                     Total Price - XXX Miles and $155.00
What does that mean?

common error.

Why didn't you just use the callback line?

Sorry to rehash this just trying to understand...

1) If I book a ticket for 25 days I can then go online and attempt to change it (within the 24 hours) to a flight that's less then 21 days and avoid the Close in fee?

2) If My friend used his miles for this ticket can I go and change it myself or does it have to be from his account?

Thank You

One of my flight times changed by 5 min. Anybody think they would waive the redeposit fee for that?
5 min earlier. Trying to use it that maybe I will miss the connections.
