As a new EXP, I understand that I would be exempt from many many ticketing and change fees. However, experience has taught me to look for gotchas, hence a few questions. In particular, just who has to be EXP: the traveller or the person who paid the miles/money or both? 1. Revenue tickets As long as date change or cancellation are permitted by fare rules, I assume I would be exempt from any associated fees if I purchased the ticket myself. Now the gray area: If I purchase a ticket for a non-EXP, are the change fees waived? If a non-EXP purchased a ticket for me, are the fees waived? 2. Awards: Basically the same question If I used my miles to purchase an ward for myself, I assume I would be exempt from any change/cancel/redeposit fees. If I purchases an award for a non-EXP, are the change fees waived? If a non-EXP purchased an award for me, are the fees waived?
