CO phone agents can't sell "flexible" fares?

    The CO website offers three preset types of fares: "lowest available", "flexible", and "unrestricted". The description of "flexible fare" says "A flexible fare is refundable but may have restrictions such as a change fee, cancellation fee and/or advance purchase requirements." (emphasis added) And I remember seeing a slightly different description a few weeks ago which included fee-free same-day changes.

    I was curious. I wanted to know more. So I called the CO elite desk. "Those (flexible fares) are only available online. We can't sell them." Which just struck me as bizarre. For the routing I'm looking at, these price into Q and seem to have a fee for refunds AND changes.

    Does anyone have wisdom to offer?

    They can sell you everything you can buy online through the phone. With that said, I'm not sure if CO system make it easy for agents to find those (or if you just got a poorly trained agent).

    In some shape or form, CO website only sells published fares (e.g. Q234WXYZ for ABC-DEF). Each one of those fares has its own restrictions/refund fee/etc. If you know a particular one you want (and it's applicable), you shouldn't have trouble getting a phone agent to book you just that.

    My guess is that their systems don't list them as "flexible" especially because the definition of flexible that CO uses is so kooky.

    Could you provide the route and the fare price you are getting?

    It is likely one of two things.

    1) Co.com is screwing up in terms of what "flexible" fares it should be identifying for that search option.
    2) They consider refundable with a $300 penalty, which is what the rules say, to be a refundable ticket. And it is in that you can get the balance of the cash back rather than only having a credit. Were it non-refundable you'd pay a penalty and then still only have credit at the airline. In the airline world there is a difference between refundable and fully refundable it turns out.

    I'm betting they mean #2.

    These Fares have a $300 USD Refund & a $250 USD Change penalty.

    CO Res Agents can definitely book any Published Fare of your choice. However, since it is not a very common request, many Agents may not be familiar with how to do it, so you should just ask for a supervisor to assist.
