Cost of Changing Flight Details - BA

Does anyone know how much BA would charge me for bringing my return flight forward by 2 days? It will be from JFK to London Gatwick.

Many thanks

Nic

What are the conditions on your ticket. Is it even changeable? If so, somewhere in the T&Cs it will tell you the cost of making a change.

It isn't a flat fee. It depends upon the rules of the ticket. If you bought a bargain basement fare there is probably no way to do it.

I was saying how much they charge me to change A flight and it was £50.It could depend on who you speak to, and how you speak to them!

No, it depends on the rules of your ticket.

Thanks, everyone - I'll check out the T&Cs but £50 as a ballpark figure is a good place to start.

It should have cost more but it was wavered. I did it in person at the airport as I got off another flight.

I just bought a ticket on BA **which on my TS&Cs** is £50 plus any difference in costs to chnage, these could be substantial, as I bought in the sale, if i changed in say a months time it could easily cost 50-100% more.

So £50 isn't 'ballpark', its the minimum.

Why ask for opinions. The easiest and most sensible way is to ask BA what they would charge !

I didn't anticipate starting such a 'lively' debate!

One of the reasons for asking here was that the BA website kept coming up with error messages whenever I tried to change the details on-line. They also say it will cost more if you telephone them to make the changes.

Anyway, the upshot is that £50 is indeed the minimum plus the difference in the cost of the flights. They couldn't give me an answer straight away but will get back to me tomorrow. As prices have actually fallen since I booked, I'm hoping that I may yet manage it for 'just' the £50.
