    A booking agent told me that date/time changes cannot be made to the first sector on a DONE4.
    This doesn't sound right. The rules certainly don't indicate this to be the case.
    Thoughts?

    If the xONEX has been ticketed, this may be correct for commencing travel in TC1 (Nth/Sth Americas) but not in NRT.

    Nothing incorrect about what the agent is saying

    If you change the 1st sector of a booking, then that counts as a cancellation and rebooking . With a xONEx which has no cancellation penalty , then there is no overall cost involved , though you may have to wait for a refund and pay for the new booking depending on your agency

    Since you are using an agency, they may have their own fees on top of that

    Was speaking to AA in Japan.
    Not sure about the varying rules for TC1/TC2/TC3 - all a bit confusing

    TC1 basically refers to the Americas (N/A & S/A)

    Hmm - is it purely due to origin?

    I changed flights/carriers/times on my recent DONE4 about 3 days before taking off from SYD.

    Did you try to change the 1st sector though?

    Unless your origin is in TC1, changes are permitted at no charge, even if ticketed.

    Note that a xONEx will require re-ticketing/re-issue unless unless the changes only relate to "Date/Time/oneworld carrier" and "origin/destination/connecting points and inventory" remain the same.
