My wife and I were planning on a trip to OGG in October to celebrate her 50th birthday. I was able to secure a great fare of $435 each for R/T from LAX. Unfortunately, my wife was diagnosed with melanoma on her face. Thankfully, the surgery was successful and the surgeon was able to remove all of the cancer. Unfortunately, the surgery left her with nerve damage that resulted in the inability to close her eye completely. The surgeon has stated she should not be wearing contacts until her eye is able to close...she is pretty much blind without her glasses/contacts. Her reason for wanting to go to Hawaii was to snorkel...she loves seeing the tropical fish. With the nerve damage eliminating her use of contacts, snorkeling is out and she requested we cancel the trip which I will do this week. Does anyone know if there is any way to get around the $150 change fee? It will be hardly worth the expense with the low fare I paid for the tickets...any suggestions are welcomed!
