Complicated SDC

Currently booked PHX (1:15 8/18)- IAH-MCO (7:10 8/18)- MCO-CLE (1:35 8/19)

Want to SDC to PHX - EWR (10:30 PM 8/18) EWR- CLE (10:00 AM 8/19)
Booked original all as one ticket with 15 hr. stopover in MCO-

Can I change to above for the $50 SDC fee?

Origin and destination remain same
On hold with elite line now

Thanks

Yes you can, provided inventory is available...

Edit: PHX-EWR-MCO has to be a valid routing by the way on this fare component.

I'm not so certain. The 15 hour "stopover" actually might mean that it was priced/booked as PHX-MCO/MCO-CLE. Changing that to PHX-CLE would mean a O/D pair change.

SBM...You're correct...I didn't read the OP's post carefully...


What he is doing is basically changing the O/D...subject to $150 Change Fee and fare difference...

IMHO he should just SDC everything and fly PHX-IAH-MCO-CLE getting into CLE regardless...

SBM- that's what I got from my first agent-
Best I can do so far is PHX-EWR-MCO-CLE on the 10:30 PM leaving PHX
Hoping when I get to IAH later today I can find a friendly agent who will let me do the PHX-EWR-CLE this currently costs me $150 + $700 fare change and the other routing including MCO is only $50 SDC. In MCO now and completed everything I need to no need to come back now like I had originally booked

I'm confused...you're in MCO now and don't need to come back? so why fly PHX-MCO? I would just fly PHX IAH MCO CLE for the miles atleast...

I don't think you're going to get away with anything short of getting to MCO and then getting the next available flight. Or just buying a new ticket, but that's probably not particularly reasonably priced.

Same Day Change.

The airlines make the policies; we abbreviate them so they're easy to talk about online.
