Can it be cheaper to book a new flight rather than changing an existing booking?
Yes, because you cannot access a cheaper price category when changing a booking. You can only change your flight for another (subject to availability) in the same or next-highest price category.
During our price promotions, some of our flights are so heavily reduced that it can pay to rebook completely
