Ticket Change Fees

When travelers book their flights, they often think they’ve booked in accordance to their schedule. However, sometimes a traveler needs to change a flight, whether they need a later flight, an earlier flight or they want to fly out on a completely different day. When this happens, passengers are required to pay airline change fees. Each airline has its own change fees; travelers should familiarize themselves with their airlines change fee prior to purchasing tickets.

 

American Airline

Passengers who make a change to their flight are subject to a $$200 change fee. The carrier points out its program Choice Essential and Choice Plus allow changes with no fee, as well as other benefits. The programs were introduced late last year. The base fare is higher than that of a basic economy-class ticket.
