Chat to change and rebook it
ETA : I see it's an old booking.

That's what I get for doing 20 bookings at once. That is also why you can stick a fork in me.  ;)

Well, I was not really playing a game, but it was still a dumb mistake.

Suffered with no food and rest at CLE after my flight was diverted there because I completely forgot about Citi's Trip Delay Protection.

Was making several PP purchases. Somehow one of the 13k purchase came from checking instead of 2.5% CC.  >:(

Used wrong cards (x6) for BB and BB&B Amex offers today. Lesson learned: don't do business on תשעה באב.
