I have a roundtrip ticket from the US > Japan > US with ANA. Their "flex special" fare allows flight changes for free + any fare difference.
My question is, how will the fare difference be calculated if I have already flown the first leg from the US to Japan? Will it be compared to a "historical" round-trip price with the new return date, or to a one-way ticket from Japan > US?
I'm concerned about this because the roundtrip ticket was about $1700, but a one-way ticket with ANA from Japan > US costs about $5000 (which is absurd, but that's another topic).
