Arrow Whats the change fee?

I am flying LAX-DXB-LHE at the end of the month. I called to change the outbound to LAX-DXB-PEW a few days earlier. Was told that there is a change fee of $200 and fare difference of $180. Hung up the phone, consulted with wife and called back and now the change fee is $400 and fare difference of $438.

So whats the correct change fee before commencement of journey?

Both are correct. I looked up the cheapest LAX-PEW fare and these were the change fees:


Code:
CHANGES

  ANY TIME
    CHARGE USD 400.00 FOR REISSUE.

ANY TIME
    CHARGE USD 200.00 FOR REVALIDATION.
      NOTE - TEXT BELOW NOT VALIDATED FOR AUTOPRICING.
       USD200 APPLIES IN CASE OF DATE CHANGE INCLUDING
       REVALIDATION OF INTERLINE SECTORS IF ANY.
       USD400 APPLIES IN CASE OF REROUTE OF ITINERARY
       AND CHANGE IN FARE OR APPLICABLE RBD.
       NOTE- FOR REROUTE PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL EK
       TICKET OFFICE.
Basically, if your original class is available, the change fee should be US $ 200 with no fare difference as long as the original fare is still there.

If there is a fare difference, the penalty would be $400 PLUS fare difference as you are changing the RBD.
