Avoid Alaska Airlines award ticket change fee
I have no status with AS. Currently I have TPE-HKG-YYZ award on CX booked using AS miles. I’ve been hoping to drop the first segment, TPE-HKG for a while since our TPE plans changed. However I’d be forced to eat the change fee 375$ (3 people x 125$) which I would prefer not to do.
Recently with some of the frequency changes on CX, the HKG-YYZ leg was changed from 10:30am to 6:15pm. With such a vast change in departure time, would I be able to use this schedule change to get a fee waiver to drop the first segment?
Maybe. CX has been making a lot of significant changes to their upcoming flight time schedules lately. You won’t know the answer to your question until you actually call AK.
