Don’t spend $200 change fees on a whim or a marginal convenience. Change fees are reimbursable if project causes travel plan changes AND your manager gives an OK. Also, if you have status, you can just go early to the airport and do a standby on earlier flights.

Depends on project

Just to clarify: they’re always reimbursable, but you may get in trouble with project leadership

What D1 said. Use your best discretion - if it’s to go home early, find a way to not incur the change fee
