Changing a domestic Thai flight booked via thaiairways.com

I (stupidly) bought a ticket from BKK to Koh Samui for April 2015.

Lo and behold, I need to change it. Instead of Koh I'm going to Chang Mai.

What's the procedure for changing a Thai flight?

I'm I going to lose the money on the first ticket? Or will they let me change and pay the difference?

I'm well versed on changing tickets on North American based airlines, but am having the hardest time finding Terms and Conditions for my current ticket.

Yep. Code Q.

Using Google, having a rough time finding the info I need. Been on Thai Airways site and, while it's easy to navigate, can't find Q rules.

I would recommend CNX '8 days a week' over USM. Enjoy the travel.

BTW: In the future just make a dummy booking and you'll be able to access the fare rules on the page where the a/i price is shown.
