Change happens, fees shouldn't
Several major airlines, including Delta Air Lines, Alaska, American, and United Airlines, offer a choice of flexible ticketing options. Under these policies, you can change your flight once without any fees, as long as you travel within the departure dates specified by the individual airline policy. (Fare differences may apply, as always.) Some airlines will even let you cancel flights for future credit. So booking early lets you lock in a great price now on a fare with no change fees and have the peace of mind you can reschedule later.
Note: Exact policies vary by airline. Policies are subject to change. We recommend always checking the individual airline’s policies before you book. Please visit the sites below to learn what is covered.
