Could anyone provide advice to me?
I need to change my itinerary without incurring maximum costs. I need to fly out a day earlier (12/4) with my pregnant wife to LAX on United with a stopover in ORD. I start in DAY. Originally, I was on the same itinerary but on this Friday (12/5) the day after she goes.
I have called United and tried to get them to help me out but normal change fees apply of course. If I go with my wife to the airport this Thursday do I stand a better chance of getting on the flight with say the $50 change fee? What would be my best option. Also, I am a platinum member on US Airways or Star gold whatever that is worth.
