Update: European Airlines OK Free Ticket Changes; US Extends Window

April 29, 2009 | Posted in: Airline News,Europe,United

As you know, many U.S. airlines (and Aeromexico) are allowing travelers to Mexico to make a ticket change at no cost, and now Bloomberg reports the Europeans are joining in.

The Air France-KLM Group, Lufthansa and British Airways are allowing passengers to postpone flights, and Air France and BA say their passengers can change destinations.

U.S. NOTE: It appears some airlines are extending the length of their “no change fee” policy – United, for example now covers travel to, from or through Mexico – on tickets purchased by April 26th – until May 15. Check with your airline, for the latest information.

    The lesson is: fly Southwest airlines whenever you can.
    Here’s their change policy

    If for any reason you need to cancel your booked flight, Southwest will give you a credit for the fare amount to use anytime on any southwest flight within a year from purchase date.

    Don’t plan to travel by air again? Fine. You can sell or give your unused credit to anyone you want. Just give them the confirmation number

    All the other major airlines sock you for a $150 change fee, force you to use or lose the ticket and then sell your vacated seat to someone else.
    In the business world they call that double dipping
