No. When you book over the phone they charge a phone fee that's it's non-refundable, nothing to do if you can cancel online
But I'm asking if an airline is allowed to charge a fee just for canceling.

It's a fee for booking, not cancelling

Random airline-questions. - split tickets with same airline
« Reply #2372 on: December 02, 2018, 06:19:41 PM »
HI,

Is there a way I can select something not on regular airline sites

Want to fly first with a stopover and on the way back a direct flight.

Want to do this without paying a fortune.

I am looking at 1/19  virgin atlantic EWR to london, stopover for 24 hours,  elal to israel and then a direct flight back  on 1/24 Friday early am.

Cant seem to break the direct el al option and need to take stop over in both directions.

Any idea?

you never earn miles for award redemption.
Unless flights delayed/cancelled and airline rebooks you on a rev fare.

You never earn miles on an award ticket, regardless of which airline operates the flight.

They boarded early. Zipped through it in about 4 minutes.
Nice, but not as overwhelming as they described it.

Only Air Canada (Aeroplan miles) flys direct. No Chase points or United miles? Could get better value booking with United (if no close in fee).
