On a multi-segment itinerary (KIX-SFO-ORD-LAN-ORD-SFO-KIX), I decided to go overland with my sister from LAN to ORD so that we could visit some relatives that we had both not seen for a long time. See does not fly. Period! When I called to get that segment removed from my itinerary, I was told that I would have to pay the $200 change fee just to NOT fly! Here I am, vacating a revenue seat for another traveler, and I've got to pay to do it! Arrgh! Any advice? Would talking to a different agent possibly yield a different result?
