Correct..in fact I used it yesterday. I filed the online form yesterday morning as the Sr rate on B6 dropped below my ES fare. They approved it by 7:00 pm. It now shows as a Sr rate category so not sure it could be used again as it's no longer a ES.
I never book ES I book something more flexible, but by final pmt date if I'm 100% sure about cruise I will change it to ES just in case it does drop in future. (As it did on the Breeze BC6)
