How can I avoid change of flight fee on TAM

Inadvertantly purchased ticket on TAM (continuation of NY to Buenos Aires) which will result in 12 hour layover at GRU. Any suggestions on how to avoid TAM charging a fee (because ticket is "non-refundable") even if space is available on earlier TAM flight?

Did you just buy today or yesterday? Some airlines allow you to cancel and rebook within 24hrs @ no cost (even for non-refundable tix).

And now my standard add-on line for airlines questions: If you don't get any other responses here, try flyertalk.com. Flyertalk regulars include many world-traveling, road-warrior types who really know their way around airlines/airports/freq flyer programs, etc. Lots of good information to be had on that site. Here’s a link to the main forum discussion on TAM and other SA airlines:


You also might want to check out the star alliance forum on flyertalk as TAM is a member.

Good luck.
