Changing departure flight on US Airways

Jump to last reply

Hi! I haven't posted in a long time, but I lurk regularly~ :)

I am currently booked on a CLT to LAS flight on 10/2 at 8pm departure. I would like to move up to the 6:15pm departure flight the cheapest way possible.

I am being told that it would cost approx $115/each to change our reservations. However, if we show up at the airport they will only charge $25/each to go standby on the earlier flight.

What is the best way to tell how likely we are to make the earlier flight? If I go on their site and plug in the same flight this week (9/11 departure), there are plenty of seats available on the flight. Is there a better way of checking than this?

Also, will they allow us to go standby if there are ANY seats available or do they have a certain capacity level that they won't go below. (Ex plane is 75% full, so they won't allow standby, etc)

Thank you! I am trying to decide if it is worth it for me to just pay the charge to change our reservation.
