Same day change - I class

If I'm booked into I class, can I do a same day change to a different flight at airport subject to availability for the flat fee?

Pre-Amadeus it did not matter as SDC was just a change to the PNR and reusing the original coupon.

Post-Amadeus I'm uncertain, and don't recall reading any reports on it.

For reference, UA SDC requires reticketing, so it can only be done on 016.

It's Avianca-issued on AC metal.

I want to know if this exact situation is possible so please report the outcome if you end up attempting this.

It was not - the airport agent could not touch the ticket. Incidentally, even though it was HK (hold confirmed), the ticket was in fact invalid and I had to call Avianca to re-ticket. Apparently they don't monitor (or haven't monitored) AC's bazillion schedule changes. It was re-ticketed without issue though. On check-in I could not even stand by for an earlier flight. So, despite the fact I could not change the flight, it was actually worth going early as I would have been screwed if I arrived late. Good ol' *Alliance. Note that this agent was noticeably uninterested in helping so YMMV.
