Hope for a weather cause free cancellation waiver. (You can if you want to spend the time and daily pushing the flight out 1 day via SDC until such an event happens, but may take many weeks -- gets messy if the return needs to be pushed also).

Otherwise, cancel prior to departure and you will have available a credit in traveler's name a future credit. Depending on when purchased it will costs $150 to $200 in new money to get access to the credit.

When, if ready, to use the credit, call and book new itin. This is the point the change fee is required. If there is an residual, you will receive a vouchure good for future flight credit, no fee, can be used by anyone.
