Free change of flight on the day of departure from Lufthansa18 September 2017 20:36
Lufthansa, the Austrian Airlines group of companies and Swiss under the new rules allow passengers with Economy Economy Flex tickets and flexible business class to change the flight on the day of departure to an earlier one free of charge.
Before, it was allowed to make changes without paying a penalty only if the difference between the paid and available price of the ticket was paid for, if at the time of making changes only a more expensive tariff was available.
According to the innovation, changes are free only on the day of departure for own flights of Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines or Swiss. Rebooking on Lufthansa flights is possible via the Internet or at the airport, but flights between Austrian Airlines and Swiss to earlier passengers can only be booked at the airport.
The rules for free changes to an earlier flight do not apply if there are no seats on the plane in the purchased class, or if the passenger has ordered additional services.
