Unless you're sure they won't work out, why cancel? Delta changes flights often - If they honor this you may be able to change dates if they change flight times on you.
+1

Plus, the reservations were only 250 SkyPesos each. Even if you have 10, that's only 2,500 Pesos, or approximately $0 value  ;D


OK fine, it's worth a few $$. But even if you fly on 1 from the speculative, you got your monies worth and then some.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Speculatively purchased a few tickets but they might not work out for me... with the 24 hr marker approaching I might CXL the reservations.
What dates and airports? Maybe they'll be nice about changing info within 24 hours. (Yeah, right.)
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Realized two of them would cost just as much than just starting the trip from my home airport. The other four were booked for a date that wouldn't work for my family. Prefer just starting from my home airport as well...

How long of a wait is average to hear if this will be honored?

I conservatively got myself three options:

5/13 YVR-LAX (return from my $10 LAX YVR on 5/11  :) )
5/18 YVR-PHL
5/18 YYC-PHL

All for two people. Ended up canceling YYC-PHL. Need to be in LA 5/13-5/15 so the question is just whether to spend two days in YVR before or after. With these prices, I can keep my options open for now, and AS flights are refundable until 60 days before. Opened a Fairmont credit card so we'll have somewhere nice to stay in YVR.

Nice find on the YYC/YVR - PHL. For my dates, everything transcon was above the threshold.

My trips are showing up on Delta and look ticketed. I can even change seats and upgrade. I think it is working.
I bought the inbound tickets today so I'm counting on the return tickets from Canada working.

Alot of transcons from YVR were available in Feb/Mar including to places like Florida. Travel on/after April increased the airfare.

A single late bag (>20 minutes) is 2500 miles. I have several of these gifts from Delta for late bags. I'm not going to bother with getting a refund for any of these. There is a 100% chance I won't take all of these trips.

Sure. Just send us an envelope with prepaid postage and we'll send you the $0.17 that 250 pesos are worth. (I know, I know, they're not THAT bad yet. Still one deval to go before we hit that.)
