Is it possible to change the date of a flight?
Passengers can request the airline to make changes in the date, time and destination on their ticketed flight. However, no physical changes can be endorsed on a ticket that has been issued. Airlines need to cancel the flight ticket and issue a fresh ticket, as per the passengers’ request.
