Would it be possible to get a date change during a layover in Istanbul? We want to fly from Hong Kong to Johannesburg via Istanbul.
My company will reimburse the ticket, but would not allow for a stop over longer than 24 hours. We really want to see Turkey on the way, so we are trying to figure a way around this.
Say I book a one way ticket, get my boarding passes through to Johannesburg upon check in at Hong Kong. The the moment we arrive in Istanbul request a date change , for say two weeks later, and then continue the journey to Johannesburg two weeks later.
Is this possible? There will probably be a penalty to pay, which we might consider if it's not too hefty.
Thanks in advance.
