We are committed to delivering the SkyMiles experience you expect and the benefits you've earned. Visit this page regularly to stay informed of the latest program news and changes.
Beginning April 23, 2013, you may request a day-of-flight change any time prior to the departure time of your original flight. Previously, this option was only available within three hours of your new departure time, so this expanded timeframe will allow you more time to make changes. Diamond, Platinum and Gold Medallion® members will still receive fee waivers for same-day confirmed changes, but new flight times must now be three hours before or after your original flight time to be eligible for a waiver.
Please also note that the same booking class (e.g. Q, K, L or U) as your original ticket must now be available for same-day confirmed travel changes to another flight.
Diamond, Platinum, and Gold Medallion members may continue to stand by free of charge for flights outside of the complimentary window or when your booking class is not available. We also now offer a new $50 standby option for Silver Medallion members, general SkyMiles members and non-members.
Please see our same-day travel options section for more information.
