I bought one of the more flexible fares to HKG because it was the lowest price. With the protests, I went into the change flight area to see what that actually meant. I found that for my fare rules, I could “change” to another date or destination but it was always a $300 change fee. So, it was the new flight cost minus my old flight cost plus $300.

It is nice that the search engine in change flight gives you the final total. But for a $587 ticket, a $300 change fee is substantial.
