Penalties When Plans Change Last Minute

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm curious about this situation. Suppose I book a cheap ticket, and then my plans change. I suddenly need to leave on a different day.

To be concrete (not a real example) let's say I booked a ticket a month ago, and I was supposed to leave next week. But then now I need to leave two days from now.

I'll have to pay a change fee + fare difference. What does the fare difference typically look like in an example like this?

In other words, my question is whether the fare difference will depend on whether I've satisfied some advance purchase requirement upon rebooking. Does someone know?

Thanks!
