I think the title says it all. This was much discussed some time back, as a change was supposed to be in the air. However, I don't remember seeing that it ever happened

I have done it several times - not a problem. Often inventory for the return only shows up 1-2 days in advance.

To those who answered in the positive. Was the change available on-line? Thru home BAEC only or were the local BAEC able to process?

Apologies to OP if this supplementary question is not helpful.

Very welcome indeed.

What exactly were you able to change (i.e. date of flight, flight time on same date, destination city etc.) and were there any extenuating circumstances (i.e. BA schedule change, irreg ops etc.)? TIA!

Not available on-line, skyped home BAEC (UK) but didn't try local centre (USA or Brazil)
