Exchanging Business Class airticket

Travel Forums General Talk Exchanging Business Class airticket

I had booked a business class airticket in Lufthansa. But now I am thinking to go for a economy class because of the costs. Can I exchange my ticket before I board the flight. In that case, will the Airlines provide cash or coupon.

Is the ticket a refundable/transferable ticket? They may not have to give you either :( I hope that isn't the case...why don't you give them a call and find out? If you wait until the last minute, the flight may be full...or any multitude of things...let us know how it goes...:)

Ring them and try to cancel if you an get a full refund rather than "exchanging" as they may end up selling you the most expensive Y class ticket. Check availablity (you can use american express travel for this on line) to make sure they have seats in Y class, then try to cash in the ticket - check the clauses.

I have flown J and Y on LH and there is a great difference if you are going on a long journey! Flwn Middle East to the USA in both and felt so much better after the J class.

Also Middle East to South America, Y class out then got bumped both sectors GRU-FRA-DXB to J class - full flat beds now - maybe see what you can get back, if it's not that much, go with the J class!
