I had 2 one way tickets booked on American through ba last week, the first leg was cancelled due to the storm. What is the airlines obligation as to refund the return ticket (which I obviously missed). Whom should I contact BA OR AA?
When is / was the return? Things get more complicated once you're a no-show (regardless of reason).

If it was two one ways, there shouldn't be a no show issue.

Exactly my point / question. He should've cancelled that segment he knew he was missing (since he didn't fly THERE), his post doesn't imply that he did..

If the return ticket passed already, why didn't you cancel before return flight time (so that you wouldn't be a no show)? If it didn't yet pass, call to cancel it and ask for a fee waiver..

Not saying it can't be done now, just that it's easier to get them to do something like this proactively..

Yes I did cancel it before the second segment (which already passed).

OK This sucks. after waiting almost an hour on the phone for an agent all they had to say is "sorry for the inconvenience we won't refund for the second segment". Anything else I can do at this point, I mean this doesn't make sense, they were the ones who canceled my first flight don't they have some sort of responsibility to refund my flight back? (I understand that technically speaking it was 2 separate reservations, but I think any normal person with a little common sense would agree with me)

Dan often encourages to do 2 o/w, doesn't that create massive headaches such as this one?

Why donít you Ask them to at least rebook you for a later date and then call later to cancel?

The reason Dan says to book as two one ways is for precisely this reason, if something happens to the first flight, you have no problems changing our canceling the second flight. In this case, it seems like you just messed up and didn't cancel your return even though it was a separate flight.

It's definitely worth a shot, if you can get them to rebook you, you should be able to cancel after.

Wrong! I did cancel but it was within 24hr of departure so they refuse to refund. I see it the other way around. When you book RT, if they cancel your first segment they are now obligated to refund the second segment no questions asked...

Your two flights were within 24 hrs of each other?

The benefit of booking 2 separate one ways is for you to be able to only cancel one way if your plans change (say you decide to stay for a few extra days at your destination)..

No, but there was a Shabbos in the middle. I basically had a very short period on Friday afternoon to get it done, You get the point...

Hi,
My friend is thinking about flying from Israel to USA with Emirates thru ATH or MXP. From ATH they fly with a 777, and from MXP with the A380. Which one is better (in economy)?
Thanks
