    I booked rt airfare out of Newark to MCO a couple of weeks ago on Continental for 4, I just checked the website and the prices have dropped about $20 pp, $80 for all of us. I probably know the answer already, but...is there a charge to keep the same flights and get the cheaper price? I could kick myself for already buying the plane tickets but it was a pretty good price, under $200 each, so I did, fearing that if I waited the price would go up.

    I don't know Continental's policy, but on American - there would be a $150/ticket change fee.

    I think Continental's the same; I know the information is available on their website.

    OP: first lesson of airline ticket after-purchase: stop looking at prices :teeth:

    Yeah, I read the fine print and checked the website, I was going to call Continental but that's probably pointless.

    Exactly! I should know better, but now and then the price has gone way up after I've purchased tickets and then I get to smirk about what a great deal I got. :guilty:

    $150 fee per ticket for changes on Continental.

    Be happy that you still got a "pretty good price" of under $200 per ticket. For EWR to Florida and back that's actually better than pretty good.

    Enjoy your trip.

    Yep, when I purchased the tickets I thought it wasn't a bad price. I'm over it now, just annoyed yesterday.

    Thanks. :)
