We've all be burned.... remember when Marriott told SPG members that the merger would work out better for them? That their IT integration would be done over a single weekend?

Phew... kinda glad I didn't book. Every day I was searching for new routes, but knowing that I'd probably have to move the dates and spend 2-3x more in a fare difference, I'm glad it's over. For...

That's the big question mark in the other thread.. most airlines have worded it as "fare difference", which does imply the fare, which in this case may end at some point and change to a new fare...

I believe many flyers are trying to take advantage of the Luftansa Group cash-grab, with the change fees being waived until 2021. Book now when they need money, and then change your flight to a...
