Advice Needed:Need To Get A Flight A Day Earlier

Tue Dec 02, 2008 8:20 pm

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.

Thank you!

Plat on US? I'm sorry.
But to answer your question, if I were you, I'd show up on the day you want to travel, show them your itinerary, and say, "Look, I'm platinum. What can you work for me?"

You never know, especially at the elite desks.

All that said, I now realize that we're talking about events that have already happened. So what's the outcome?
