Does anyone have experience getting a refund on fully refundable ("flex") fare ticket from Aer Lingus?  I'm just seeking reassurance that the process is straightforward and that there are no pitfalls to avoid.

Is it possible to get travel insurance for a trip booked with miles? I mean reimbursement for cancellation for medical reasons.

Sure, just do the refund fee as the trip cost

Yes, just walk through the parking lot. I've done it in the past.

it's not an official walkway hence not on the map. Maybe 5-7 min walk, I have not done it in a while.

Delta basic economy says no advance seat assignment https://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/traveling-with-us/onboard-experience/basic-economy.html

But what if you are traveling with kids? They will split up a family?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
