Standby....Now Guaranteed for $25

Ever want to change your flight to an earlier one? Hate to pay a $100 change fee or stand around bothering the gate agents?

American and US Airways have been testing out an option that would allow standby passengers to get guaranteed seats on earlier flights for a $25 charge, if any seats are available. Other carriers also offer the possibility of snagging a seat for some extra cash, but for now you have to ask for it.

Cheapskates, or as I prefer to call myself, old-school fly boys and girls, still have the option of hanging around for free on the off chance that there will be an available seat. Bring a book, and experience the thrill of seeing how non-revs travel!

Good luck to anyone giving it a have been full lately, due to the airlines cutting back service.
