If you are providing your own airfare - If you are providing your own international transportation and do not want the airfare Forspro includes in the price of the program, you receive a $975 credit.

Deviations. If you want to depart and/or return on dates different from the group's reservation, you must make your own flight arrangements. See "If you are providing your own airfare". However, once ticket is issued, the airline will allow you to make one change. Note: It may be hard to find availability after ticketing; therefore, if you want to return on dates different than the group's itinerary, make your own arrangements.
Flight itinerary - The airline is the one who makes all the flight arrangements, the itineraries for the program flights, and sets its policies. The itineraries are randomly selected by the airline. Some participants may encounter longer delays than others in their connecting flights. However, the delays are no different than many of the connections you experience in flights you may arrange yourself.
