I Booked a Flight on Brussels airline TLV-BRU in Business (if you can call it that). I want to change it to TLV-VIE on Austrian Airlines. After much HUCA they were willing to do it only they can't downgrade me to Economy so it will cost another 1000$. Tried HUCA to book me in economy for which there would be no extra charge, but nothing doing. Any ideas??
Do all Airlines never downgrade from Business to Economy?

I think it's  'extra seat ad120'. Revenue or points.

It definitely was weather, there were severe winds delaying flights for chunks of time. My flight circled Connecticut three times before landing

Why is everything dependent on one location? Their IT department should have had everything replicated elsewhere.

I booked a ticket for a 1 year old on Air France from JFK-CDG. When I put in the DOB it gave me an error message that a child’s ticket can only be for a child between 2-11. So I changed his DOB by exactly 1 year to make him 2. Any risk in doing that. The ticket was cheap enough that I wanted to purchase a ticket.

Technically that works, however only for benefits like economy plus seating becuase once you cancel your reservation she would lose the benefits. You can get the extra baggage if you cancel after she checks in her bags.
PM me for airline compensation help. Your case is not lost!
