Fare Change After Reserving or Purchasing
Applicable Fares and Charges
Fares and charges valid for the date of boarding on the date the ticket was purchased will apply. Even if there is a change in the fare amount of the flight after purchasing the ticket, the difference will not be collected or refunded.
If the fare is one where the reservation can be changed and the fare changes due to a change in the boarding date (such as when crossing over normal or peak periods), the difference will be collected or refunded.
If the fare/price changes in the period between after making the reservation to purchasing the ticket, the fare/price valid at the time of purchase will apply, and therefore it may differ from the fare/price when the reservation is made.
Reference Date for Determining Fare
The reference date for determining the fare is the reference date on which the fare for the ticket is determined. The ‘reference date for determining fare’ means the date on which the ticket was purchased, but in some cases, the purchase date of the ticket and the fare application reference date may differ.
The reference date for determining the fare is determined separately for each flight.
Here are some examples of fare calculation rules and reference dates for determining the fare.
(1) If the fare amount changes
Before the ticket has been purchased
After the ticket has been purchased
(2) If you change your boarding date from peak season to regular season after purchasing a ticket
If you change the boarding date with a rebookable fare, the fare amount on the date the ticket was purchased (reference date for determining fare) will apply as the fare set for the boarding date after the change.
(3) If you pay for your ticket at a convenience store
If you pay at a convenience store after printing the payment slip through using convenience store payment, the date the ticket was purchased and the reference date for determining the fare may differ.
If you issue an application ticket or waiting ticket at a multimedia terminal installed at a convenience store and take it to the cash register, the fare displayed on the terminal screen will apply.
(4) Adding a return flight after purchasing a one way ticket
