I really need some advice regarding changing the itinerary of non-refundable air tickets.
Basically, my mother has already booked a LHR to SIN round trip ticket on SQ, leaving the UK, and coming back five weeks later. However, because the health of a family member has deteriorated quicker than expected, she really needs to get out there as early in the new year as possible. The question I want to ask therefore is whether or not airlines (perhaps in your personal experience) are prepared to change discounted itinearies for this sort of situation.

Most airlines will allow changes even on the cheapest airfares. They will of course charge a change fee and if the fare for the new flight is higher, you have to pay the difference (of if you're lucky, the fare difference will be lower and your change fee may be lower or non-existent as the difference is applied to the fee). This sort of change can typically be done on the airlines' website with some exceptions.
