Choice Fares - No more free changes > 14 days [Bookings from 1st Sep]

Very lucky to have booked a choice fare on August 31 that I now need to change > 14 days out so just scrapped in by one day with that booking to still have a fee free change with only fare difference. I was ecstatic when I looked up the booking date to find August 31

But this message quite annoying that I'll now be forced into the new fare rules and will have to pay for any future changes on this booking now :(

No more choice bookings left for me now booked pre-September 1.

At least it was better than Qantas who charge such fees as published at the time of change, not the time of booking. (e.g. If you book and a change fee was $88 but need to change. Meanwhile, if that fee has increased to $99, that $99 is the fee you pay.)
 
Does anyone know if the $99 fee is per pax or per ticket (have 4 on the ticket and want to know if am up for 1*$99 or 4*$99)?

Each pax has their own ticket...and yes, it is $99 per pax/ticket...not $99 per booking / PNR.
 
No doubt those bean counters have been at it, what a shame was nice whilst it lasted I guess
Similar to when Bain and Singapore Ltd started charging carrier fees on SQ redemptions when they restarted the Velocity-Krisflyer point transfers.
