    Our daughter graduates from College this term. She informed us this summer that the graduation ceremony would take place after the spring term. Last night she informed us she was wrong and the ceremony is scheduled to take place while we're in Vegas this December. Naturally this changes our plans. Our Vegas round trip flight was booked over a month ago. My question is.....can we move up the return leg of the trip, and if so, is there a significant charge? I've already looked at booking a retun trip from Vegas on Travelocity, which unfortunately would cost almost as much as the original round trip purchase price. We thought we scored big when we booked the trip....$370 for both of us. Thanks.

    Pretty much all airlines have a change fee for changing any part of a ticket. Actual rules are on their website, and probably more at flyertalk.com than you want to know.

    I believe the change fee is $200. No idea if that is per ticket. You usually also have to pay any difference in fare.

    Booking a 1 way back earlier may be cheaper if they won't waive the fee.

    But I'd certainly call them first, get things escalated if need be and make clear you won't be paying them any extra money except for a reasonable fare difference, and if they insist on the fee your business will be going elsewhere. Worth a shot.

    $200 plus difference in fare between the tickets. Your best bet is to try to plead with the phone agent to charge you only $200 for both tickets; the computer is going to charge $200 to change each seat.
