About 5 of mine had departure changes. Would they allow me to change to whenever I want now?

personally, I'd avoid calling a live rep to discuss any of these unless 1) there are no other "250" reservations on the account and 2) you won't use the flight in question unless you get it changed.

If you do call, let us know how it goes!

And even so I'd wait it out a little bit

At this rate, I'm going to guess that they will honor these reservations since they've been quiet for a few days.

Looking for some advice here with a lap-child on one of these flights.

Booked 1st class Tix for parents etc. wanted to book another ticket for all babies, not enough seats were available at eligible price. International flight so lap-child needs some kind of ticket. booked last ticket (child under 2) on a coach ticket on same flight.
[to be sure, booked a 2nd ticket on same flight for 1 parent in coach as well]

Should I:
A) Just cancel parent coach ticket? will they allow family on with parents in 1st and lap child ticketed in coach? (lap child request is 'listed' on parent ticket).
B) call up to purchase a normal child fare? (10% of cash price). ticket (1st) is now running about $300, but about $100 of it is taxes and fees. will a child booking cost $30 $120 somewhere in between?
C) pay about $90-100 to upgrade child's coach ticket to 1st.

Anyone with experience? or should I better move to the 'infant' thread?
was it international or canada-us because canada-us lap infants only pay taxes
So I guess that I should definitely cancel the adult/coach ticket, to prevent confusion? should probably do the same for the baby/coach ticket?

Why did you do that?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

You could. But I'd prefer to sit in coach with a baby seat then up front without

Unless the baby is sleeping and will stay in the car seat the whole time, allowing you to have your hands free...
I would sit in coach. Just my personal opinion
