Anyone have any experience with Turkish?

Flight is Paris ===> Tel Aviv

Turkish won't cancel/credit.

Thoughts?

Booked an international flight ticketed with DL using my MR points. Called Amex Plat travel today and they credited me the $2200 value of the ticket to use on DL through the end of the year (essentially a one time fee free change).

Any chance I can HUCA and get my MR points refunded?

el al website earlier today had an option of cancelling ticket
seems they took it down now
and their usa number not working
i got through and they offered to hold ticket for one year or pay 270 cancel fee
i asked for manager and said i wont be allowed in country and guy said too bad
the arrogance is appalling
ticket is for 3/29 1 am flight jfk-tlv
i called amex and tried to dispute and got rejected bec flight wasnt cancelled yet
i explained i wouldnt be allowed and covid19 is an unprecedented situation with travel bans etc and still got nothing
any suggestions ?

Anyone had luck with BA flights booked before March 3rd? Would they waive the change fee?

Need these clowns to issue refund. Not kool. The country banned travelers. How are they not cancelling and refunding.

Qantas refunded award on LY with no penalties. Flight was cancelled and rebooked for a non workable flight.

Quote from: bookwithcarry.com
For example, we looked up this flight from PHL to SFO, its $299 for a one-way ticket, Now, when we try to change an existing flight booking on United.com, the exact same flight will cost us $596

Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

IINM United only allows free changes even when booked directly,

ANA allows free changes and 3,000 miles for cancellation.

Now that the border is closed for ALL non essential travel, should I assume my flights from US to Canada for Pesach will be canceled and refunded?  Flying to Canada using AA miles and returning with paid AC flight
anyone heard anything about AA and AC policies for US-CAN flights?
Assuming they'll be canceled
Common sense is not a gift, it is a punishment.
Because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.
