This is the first fare deal like this I've jumped on so I want to make sure I understand what I'm getting myself into before the Priceline 24 hour free cancellation window passes.

The Fare conditions on the Priceline website don’t match the rules for XNW08FN0 posted by xfisgsm above. There are no change or cancellation fees listed in the fare rules on Priceline. The ticket is JL 131x

Specifically these two lines are missing -

CHARGE CAD 500.00 FOR CANCEL/NO-SHOW/REFUND

CHARGE CAD 400.00 FOR REISSUE/REVALIDATION

Can I assume the fare rules are identical? If not I would need to contact Priceline for the correct change/cancellation fees?

I paid ~ 1165 CAD all in - is it safe to assume that any date change will reprice radically higher?

If so it seems one is risking 500 CAD in order to have an incredible deal for a fixed travel date. In that case I’m willing to roll the dice even with the unknowns surrounding the COVID-19. Thanks.

What does the "Penalties" section say under the fare rules in Priceline's website?

Also, for all of you who booked with JAL, JAL has a 24 hour cancellation policy that you can find here (this is on their CA site): https://faq-ar-en.jal.co.jp/app/answ...id/26214/kw/24. I'm not too concerned with the 500 CAD cancellation fee since I'm sure that there will be schedule changes on my April booking that will allow me to refund this fare for free, especially during these turbulent times. I've made certain that DOT rules will apply by routing my return thru the US with a stopover.

This was one of rare cases where SF beat FT by a few hours.

How can I find my fare rules with AA? I booked YOW-DPS via PHL-LAX-HKG and I'd like to know if I can change my booking to include a one night stop over in HK on my way down.

#64 has the AA fare rules.

REPRICE USING FARES IN EFFECT WHEN TKT WAS ISSUED PROVIDED ALL OF THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS ARE MET- 1. NO CHANGE TO 1ST FARE COMPONENT 2. WHEN NO INTL COUPONS REMAIN - ALL NEW TRAVEL MUST BE DOMESTIC 3. AA/JL/QF ANY FARE TYPE EXCEPT EOU/ERU ARE USED 4. ALL RULE AND BOOKING CODE PROVISIONS ARE MET 5. ADV RES IS MEASURED FROM ORIGINAL TKT DATE TO DEPARTURE OF PRICING UNIT

It seems like you won't be able to reprice using historical fares based on my interpretation of that block. At most you would be able to reprice the return segments once HKG-LAX is flown, although I'm not sure if AA treats Canada as INTL.

Hmmm in this case, I'll just keep my booking the same. I have a stopover on my way back home so that'll be enough to get a taste of the city.

Indeed, after putting the booking on hold on AA.com, I called and attempted to add a stopover in HKG and it blew up the thru fare, no dice. At least we have an 18-hour overnighter on the way back, so we can enjoy the city a bit.

I also attempted to apply value of a canceled AA ticket to payment, not possible due to CX segments in the booking (despite all AA flight numbers).

So I booked the JAL option from YVR on cheapoair (was booking fast as I could). Cot a confirmation -and it ticketed in business but in the middle of the night got updated to coach. The JAL site still shows business. Did this happen to any of you?
