    How Rebooking a Flight Saved Me $475 - Reader Success Story
    By The Points Guy/ News/ thepointsguy.com

    "Today I want to share a story from TPG reader Bill, who took advantage of cancellation policies when the cost of airfare dropped:

    After reading the recent mistake story about a 24-hour cancellation, I thought it was fitting to share my success with the same policy.

    My wife and I decided to take our children to London for Thanksgiving. I booked our family of four from New York-JFK to London-Gatwick (LGW) on Norwegian departing Tuesday and returning Saturday for $1,766. I would have preferred to take an extra day and return on Sunday, but because of the cost different between Saturday and Sunday flights, coming back on Saturday was the better option.

    The next morning I did a quick check of the flight prices and saw they had dropped. It appeared I would save $100 total by canceling and rebooking. Initially I wasn’t sure changing our tickets was worth it for $100, but I decided to go ahead and do so anyway. Good thing I did. Not only had the price dropped more than I thought, but also I was able to select my preferred outbound flight and return Sunday instead of Saturday for a total cost of just $1,291 — a savings I parlayed into a mid-December trip to Florida.

    Typically, we look at the 24-hour cancellation policy as a defense against errors or buyer’s remorse, but sometimes it can save you big!......"

    Norwegian's biggest problem with flights from the US is that they don't have spare airplanes, so if yours is suddenly out of service, you're gonna be cancelled and it may take a long while to get where you're going. And even if it's a planned equipment replacement, it'll be on a charter airline with different seating and entertainment. Still, that low price ....

    We flew them LAX-Copenhagen this spring and it was no worse than other airlines. This was booked through a cruise line for a very low price.
