I recall the last-minute changes I had on my Alaska flight schedule just to be able to spend Christmas with my folks. My business meeting was extended because we needed to close the deal earlier than expected so I was to be delayed for a few more days.
As devastated as I was, I had no choice. Worrying about the extra payment to change my flight schedule on Alaska airlines, I rushed to the airport to discover that the change fees have been eliminated on Main and First Class fares thereby making travel more flexible.
So just like me, if you need to change your flight schedule on Alaska airlines there are a few things you need to know and some simple steps to be taken.
