Changing a Flight and Early Bird

New Arrival

I have a flight tomorrow, but I am looking at changing it to leave later. If I paid for early bird check-in when I booked the original flight, will it transfer to the new flight or do I lose that $15?

In this case you would lose your early bird because being the flight is tomorrow and earlier those people may be checked in already and the early bird people from the flight WOULD be checked in. 


If you change a flight with early bird and there is at least 36 hours before the new flight that you changed to then early bird would transfer but being the flight is tomorrow it won't transfer but you could pay $30-$40 at the ticket counter to get A1-A15 if available if you don't get an A boarding pass 


hope this helps and happy travels!
