Cancelling ticket due to medical emergency
« on: April 21, 2017, 11:12:30 AM »
Wasn't sure where to ask this as there a few diff aspects to my question so I started a new thread.

Booked a ticket with Turkish airlines on Priceline with an Amex biz plat. I have a note from my doctor stating that it would not be safe for me to fly now. What would be the quickest & easiest way to receive a refund? If it makes any diff it's tickets for my wife & myself & she obviously won't be flying without me.

BUMP

Kind of time sensitive. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It depends on your fare code.

If it's a cheap fare it might be a deeply discounted fare that officially does not allow refunds, even for medical reasons (Turkish actually specifies that in the fare rules of certain fares). Having said that, they might be willing to change the ticket for a fee (and fare difference if applicable), especially if you call before the first flight on the itinerary.
I agree to disagree, even if you disagree to agree to disagree.
