... and I can think of many reasons for my answer however they will make the 20 pages I mentioned earlier seem like a really short read. If you believe the system is so complex and convoluted you should do everything, everytime to make sure that you are not the one who will be inconvenienced. Just because the airline cannot get it right doesn't mean we shouldn't do everything we can to minimise the possibilities of personal issues.Not only my perspective.
Downgrading from First/Business to economy and not providing a refund as last minute Fully flexible economy is more expensive than discount First/Business.
Anyone here that thinks overselling is a good thing then please don't ever find yourself in that situation with a need to be anywhere anytime soon.
You turn up 1 minute late and are not checked in or offloaded but airlines constantly delay flights.
Ridiculous fuel surcharges on award flights but award flights are generally marketed as "free flights".
I'm sure you can think of more examples.
Start by checking in somewhere in that 48 hr period they give you. That shows them that you really do want to travel and won't be in the small percentage of no shows.
