      This is my first time using a Buddy Pass. My friend (the Delta Employee) can't be reached right now so I'm kind of clueless ………My eticket is to DTW on Thursday the 5th of August. The flight is full, I would like to change the destination to JFK.Can I get on an alternate flight to JFK? I would not then fly to DTW from JFK, but stay in the NYC area.What about the return trip, can I just fly back to Frankfurt from JFK?Will/can the checkin agent at the counter help me with the changes?Thanks for any reply.Regards,Hermann

      are you passing through JFK already? Or are you going through a different city? If you already have a flight that goes through JFK, then you could potentially just take care of your business there, at a ticketing counter at the airport. It will be busy there, though.The other option is to call Delta and ask politely on if they will help you with a buddy pass ticketing change. Sometimes they will do that for you.The last option is to call 1-800-MYDELTA and get in touch with someone at the pass travel department. You could also go to the Frankfurt airport and try to do your change right there. As long as there are Delta employees who are familiar with the system they may be able to help you.Remember that there are two things that you need to do. First, you need to relist, which is easy. Then, you need to reticket, which is a bit more difficult. You will get some money back since JFK is a lot closer , but you may need to pay a $25 change fee. Good luck!

      Thanks for your reply. My first destination was from FRA directly to DTW. THat is what is on the eticket. Unfortunately, the dates that I would like are fully booked.

      Just got it done the way I need it to be ………… called the Delta Hotline and choose the english instead of the german hotline. the german couldn't/wouldn't help me. The english hotline was very co-operative and changed everything according to my wishes .......... now all that needs to happen is to get on board on thursday .........
