Strategy for changing BusinessSaver reservation for two days eariler


Level 2 Member
I currently have 2 Business Saver seats books from MCO to MUC (Via PHL) for Sept 19st (Booked when the award was 50,000 miles). I really would like to go two days earlier so we have time to visit Salzberg.

Other than just checking the award availability everyday and calling to change it if something comes up, are there any other strategies that I need to know to increase the likelihood of making this happen.

I have noticed more dates available out of TPA and JAX (Even more than direct from PHL to MUC) but then I would have to pay the cancellation fee if those airports came up.
