FYI, I've had the change fee successfully waived with no close in fee several times since this has been "dead". Depends on the agent.

Nice, that's for 7 Tickets.
When's your flight? In 3 months? ;)
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

No that's 1 ticket. Canceled and rebooked as I was waiting for a new rep. Wipes the notes.
Each charge and credit is a new booking for the same flight.

You don't usually have to do that, if they say there's a fee, just say never mind and huca.

No reason not too, takes an extra second and can make it easier. Only actually took 4 calls.

We aren't opening seats here. We are talking about when they are available regardless.
