Rebooking in the ticketed booking class is permitted on AF/KL only for departures through September 30, 2013. If the original booking class is not available, book the next higher class and collect the applicable fare difference.

One outbound and one inbound change are permitted to maintain the original duration of stay.

For customers who wish to change their point of origin/destination, use the full value of the unused flight coupons towards the purchase of a new ticket to/from any origin/destination at any AF/KL fare, waiving any penalties and collecting any fare difference or refunding any residual amount in the form of a non-refundable EMD/VMCO/VMPD.

Refund according to fare rules. If the ticket is non-refundable, issue a non-refundable EMD/VMCO/VMPD for the full value of the unused flight coupons, valid for one year for future travel on AF/KL.

Tickets must be rebooked/reissued/refunded by September 30, 2013.
