Does anyone know if you can change airline reservations. We are leaving in 30 days and we found out that we are flying on a 32 passenger plane and my husband just freaked out because he does not fly small planes. Do you think they can make changes to another plane or refund the amount?

I am sure they will do ANYTHING for a fee. It's whether or not its worth it to pay it. I think it is either $50 or $100 anytime you change but I am sure it can be done.

Call your airline and find out what their policy is.

I spoke with American airlines and they said the fare is contracted with Carnival. I was just wondering if anyone heard of making the changes within 30 days of the cruise.

If your flights are booked through the cruise line you will need to check with them about making a change. If you can do it, you will be charged at least a "deviation" fee for requesting specific flights, and possibly might have to pay for an entire ticket. I advise you to call as soon as possible. It might be less expensive to ask your doctor for a tranquilizer for your husband!

Hi Gwen!

FWIW, I travel a LOT in my profession and whereas I share your husband's distaste for 'puddle jumpers' I can say that things have changed QUITE a bit in the past 5-8 years.

I am assuming that the plane in question is a 'prop job'? If yes, read on -- if no, then tell your husband to not worry. Small executive jets are GREAT - I fly the US Air commuter from Huntsville to Wash DC 4+ times a month -and I prefer it MUCH more to a DC80 or other large jet!

The big problem about prop jobs is that they 'pull' you through the air versus the push you get from a jet. This makes for a less smooth ride BUT - you are NOT flying in a Piper Cub! The ride is still smooth, just not as smooth as in a Jet.

I agree with Karen - I would talk to your physician about short term anxiety medication and perhaps something for motion sickness.

(Do not recommend self medication via alcohol either...the amount you drink to get a buzz on at ground level can really be magnified once you reach airline cruising altitude!)

Final point: In a lot of cases the plane in question is the only way from where you are going to your destination - at least on that airline in question. You will probably have to cancel the flight completely and take another airline (maybe - DO check all your options though!!)

Good luck & let us know how it goes!
