Yes, but your same fair class must be a available. Another option is to standby on the flight you want

Sort of. If you want to do it early the answer is no. Award ticket availability changes. If you are within the 24 hours they may let you change without any extra fees

Been friends w/ a girl for years since I met her overseas (chatting on phone often). When we started travelling together on a few trips, she annoyed me on so many levels, we are just not compatible so I no longer want to travel with her. I still value our friendship and don't mind continuing catching up on the phone. I'm non-confrontational so instead telling her i find her difficult/annoying, I just stopped inviting her/avoid trips/added a lil more distance. But she doesn't get it..-contd
