« on: February 15, 2014, 11:45:35 PM »
Any advice or direction would be helpful...

Always have to read the fare rules.
So many people get messed over thinking they're so smart doing this stuff...

Oy... I booked an AA first class ticket on Friday for over $6000 and it said refundable, does it not mean 100% refundable?

What do you mean by "so smart"?
Why can't I book a refundable ticket and cancel when my plans change?

Fare rules are only clickable at time of purchase.
A fare can be refundable but with a penalty due.

From past experience when canceling online it takes forever to process and when calling in they process it right away so thats what I did...

What happened in the end? You had to pay or you got it waived?
