Ticket changes club Europe selling class U

Hello 👋

I have a ticket for an upcoming flight and if possible was going to try and change it for a day earlier, its a club Europe ticket that was brought as a base fare and then I accepted a POUG (many months ago) so now it is showing as selling class U

Does anyone know what rules are for U class tickets in club Europe for date changes, cant seem to find them anywhere online.

When i I price the change online its 130 euro change fee and then 210 euro fare difference... seems bit crazy. Do you think this is correct ?

The flight is currently on 3/10 and trying to change to 2/10, if I cant it doesnt really matter but would be nice.

Thanks 🙏

I wasn't aware tickets could be changed after a POUG. If it can be, does the POUG stick and how is the 'fare difference' calculated between a POUG'd economy ticket and the amended CE ticket?

On BA.com will let me proceed all way to payment. It maintains the POUG class, so guess would
let me do it.

I didnt actually try and go through all way with it as I dont need to change it that bad to justify 340.

Id guess the original price + POUG cost vs. the new ticket cost.

Fare difference in my mind is the same as saying you can use the existing ticket cost as a credit against the new one

Some POUGs do seem to now allow changes on a fee and fare difference basis, I first noticed it about a year ago. The appropriate fare rules of course are on the page when you're pricing the POUG up.

Here is the text from the poug. "Promotional upgrades are non-refundable and the original fare conditions apply to any upgraded ticket."

And "Customers who change their travel arrangements after the date of booking will not be eligible for this promotion unless their revised travel arrangements also constitute a qualifying flight. In the event that the flight is not a qualifying flight, customers will travel in the cabin they originally booked and if they wish to travel in the upgraded class they will be required to pay the normal upgrade fare applicable in accordance with British Airways standard fare rules. The amount paid for the upgrade can be used as credit towards the new upgrade fare."

so appears change based on you original ticket. Plus the change appears to be to a qualifying flight in your case
