LH sucking money

had a c-class ticket boked CDG-HAM-LHR-full c-class which i booked as ecxension ex a SQ flight via CDG to HAM!
Now i wanted to change the departure date HAM to LHR to catch a SQ flight a booked flight LHR- SIN.
First trail with SEN line they asked for a rebooking fee--Hello-full C-class booking!!
Tried 5 min later-the woman told me to pay additional fuel/tax chagre when i book from previous scheduled date= plus 39 Euro.
As SEN i thought I have booking clearance for all flghts on this route without surcharge!
I there any collection fee for LH in progress?

FYI, SQ charges fees (for re-routing, cancellation, and maybe also other changes) even on full-fare F or J for everyone, including PPS members. Perhaps this is standard practice on most carriers these days?

It is not customary for an airline to charge a rebooking fee to anyone that has purchased a full fare ticket.

Contrary to the belief of some posters here, the purpose is not to maximize status points but to be able to change it at any time and without incurring any penalties.
