Very little (I assume you're talking domestic here)

Biggest difference is the availability (ie red-e-deals sell out quicker), also Points Upgrades aren't available on red-e-deals. Cost to change is the same.

Another thing to note is that if you think you're going to change dates a couple of times or more you might want to think about a Flexi-Saver or Fully Flexible ticket.

Thanks - actually i meant international.

it costs me 15pounds to change a booking on a red edeal. if i am only going to change it once, at most, twice, then the $400 isn't worth getting the super saver for no reason?

haha will the type of ticket dampen my op-up opportunity? :P or as long as i am WP i will still be in the top part of the queue behind CL?

International gets a lot more trickier.

You need to read the full rules available for the fares and compare. Different international fares have different rules - eg some are non refundable at all, others are $100 cancel fee etc.

When it comes to changes, it's nearly as tricky.

I'm not aware of fare basis affecting any <minuscule> chance of an op-up, although some agents may use that as a deciding factor.

If domestic, don't even bother thinking about the op-up chances - even with WP status. If international, I think you have more chances of the op-up from Biz to F than from WHY to Biz -- but then again, chances are close to zero as those who "pay" for upgrades with points will get in first.
