Taking advantage of airline schedule changes to save money – Associated Press
The AP put together a good article about the positive side of airline schedule changes. We continue to find that some of our Cranky Concierge clients benefit greatly from these things. We just had one this week, in fact, where the travelers were using American miles to go London-San Jose-Phoenix. A couple schedule changes made it an illegal (short) connection. Working with American, we found them an option via Dallas/Ft Worth on the American 777-300ER with better business class seats. Those seats weren’t available for miles, but since it was a schedule change, they opened them up. Even better, American refunded the nearly $300 per person in excess BA bogus surcharges when they made the switch. So if you see a schedule change, think about how you can take advantage.
