Im currently in Peru and planned to stay until September 2008, but i now have to return to the UK in June...so ive sent an email to Iberia who have a branch in San Isidro Lima, and they say yes its possible to change my inbound flight dates but it will cost me 100 dollars plus tax (134 altogether), which i expected to be honest....so yesterday i went to try and find the office but as it was on the ninth floor and seemingly impossible to get to i had to give up.
However i know exactly where the Iberia office is at the Jorge Chavez Airport and wondered if its possible to make the changes there instead? Has anyone made similar changes with Iberia flights here in Lima and was it as easy as handing over the penalty fee and showing your passport or do i need to be aware of other things?
Secondly, the ticket will be from Lima to Madrid, then Madrid to London (with a 2 hour gap in between the Madrid and London flight) and my question is, is it possible to leave the airport at Madrid, passing through security, or would i have to remain in an area and take the connecting flight without leaving? My reasoning is that if i feel exhausted at Madrid would it be possible to leave the airport, sleep off jetlag in a hotel and book a single flight the next day to complete the journey?
Any feedback appreciated, many thanks
