    Trying to get my flight changed from leaving Saturday to leaving tomorrow, but Delta wants way too much. Any suggestions.

    You are S.O.L. Your only option is to show up at the airport and hope you get an agent willing to bend the rules.

    They want about the same or more than I paid for original flight...I guess I might be screwed.

    Blowing the guy at the ticket counter works for me, I normally even get an upgrade. :) Only kidding. Hope everything works out for you.

    You wouldn't happen to have a lot of frequent flyer miles would you? I have to change flights quite a bit for my employer. Sometimes the agents will be a little more flexible if you are someone who travels a lot. Again good luck and don't dismiss my BJ suggestion to quickly. :rolleye:

    Just borrow Mark Cuban's EZ-Pass (he got it for the bargain rate of 125K in the late 80s)

    No I think I only have around 12000...It would have to be a much more expensive flight transfer for the BJ.

    the fee could be anywhere from 75-150. usually not more than that unless you bought one of those ultra-cheap tickets with limited usage.

    It's 150, plus the difference of the original price of the ticket. I've called twice today and have been checking online constantly...so far its too expensive.

    Ok! But I forgot to mention you also get an extra bag of peanuts during your flight.

    That is just the change fee. You also have to pay the difference in fare. And with this little time left, those tickets are going to be super expensive.
