How to change your booked air ticket online

Most major airlines are waiving their cancelation and change penalties fees amid coronavirus uncertainty. This allows travelers to keep a nonrefundable ticket with validation of a year to rebook later, regardless of when they bought the ticket. Customers can also change destinations but would have to pay a difference in fares.
These waivers cover passengers who purchased tickets through May 31, two months longer than previous plans. Southwest is the only airline that never charges customers a fee to change or cancel their flight.
