American airlines credit only, no refund
« on: November 30, 2021, 01:15:51 PM »
So guys, im sure im not the only one in the following situation:

I am an american scheduled to fly to israel. Currently, americans are not allowed into israel. American airlines did NOT cancel the flight.

they are offering only credit, and not a refund on the credit card. anyone have success getting credit back on the credit card?

File a DOT complaint.

They are considering requiring it, posted on DDMS recently.

Can the segments be taken out by the TA and then file the DOT complaint after that? Passenger doesn't want it to be a no show.

You can cancel and still file a complaint.

Obviously not, the refund would go back to your payment method.
