    Hello,

    I plan on going stand by tomorrow on a CO flight. The rules say "You may standby if seats are not available in the purchased fare class. In these cases, the $50 Same Day Change fee will still apply, but will not be charged unless you are assigned a seat on your alternate flight. Standby may be requested on the day of departure."

    I tried to find the answer in old posts, but had no luck regarding my situation.

    I am non-elite. If I wait until I get to the gate, is there a chance I won't be charged the $50 stand by fee? If not, I'll do it at the kiosk when I arrive.

    Also, if I do not get on the stand by flight will my $50 be refunded?

    Thank you,
    Robin

    almost no chance that they will waive the stand by fee.
