Joker rebooking question

Suppose I had used a joker to release a redemption seat and booked the flight.

At some time in the future, I need to change my booking to another date. But there is no redemption availability.

Will redemption availability be automatically opened up for me (because of my original joker used in the booking) or do I need to use another joker to change to my new date?

You can re-use a joker if you cancel the original redemption.

Bear in mind that there may also be no joker availability on your other preferred dates if somebody else has beaten you too it, so no, redemption availability is not automatic!.

(I wouldn't make it a habit though)

Yes, you can re-use the joker to open space on any new flight, as long as it hasn't expired and there is joker availability on the new flight. If it is out of date you can still change flights and use it to open space, but only within the same zone and you must make the change more than 24hrs before your flight or you lose the joker.
