+1 you think theres a chance they'll rebook if they cancel? someone said yesterday they were even rebooking on elal nonstop! was there any succos deals for the air Canada glitch that dan posted a few weeks ago? was it cheaper then the air berlin deal? which was 472 leaving after yom kippur and coming back right after? just curious to know if I missed out or maybe even lost out if they cancel and refund instead of rebook.
The AC glitch didnt work for Succos IIRC.

many of us bought non-flex tix after the 15th, so officially they will offer a refund if cancelled. whats the science in switching sales to "flex-only" now?  either way, tickets sold today have the same rules as those sold anytime after the 15th?

It's the fact that they don't have to offer the refund yet, since they didn't officially cancel the flight. You have a hard time claiming insurance or a refund when the flight isn't officially cancelled. The Flex route has been a indicator that Air Berlin will be cancelling the route, you can run a few checks and find that has been the case with how the blogs and media surmised that Sept 25th was the date many routes were ending, even before the official announcement. When people called (myself included) the rep insisted the flight was still operating in October, and even if it was cancelled, they would be rebooked on another airline. Obviously that turned out to be a false statement, but the flex fare only has been correct every time.

It doesn't seem like LH is taking over their long haul routes, so I wouldn't bank on them picking up the bookings. There's a reason they waited until the bids were in on 9/15 before sending out the mass cancellation emails. The bids likely didn't include taking on the bookings, which would be a liability on the books. I know I wouldn't take it on, unless I was forced to as a condition of the bidding process.

So airberlin tickets canceled or not.
On the website it doesn’t shows canceled and there was no cancellation email.

Depends on dates on routes, so far.

BamS also said its sources had said next week Air Berlin would have to return planes used on its long haul routes to two companies it leases aircraft from
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

If you skip any leg of a trip, the entire trip will get cancelled.

Please note german papers report that ALL longhaul will be ceased from Oct 15. So in case you have a flight back after sukkoth to the US it will not happen.
Consider strongly if you want to fly to Israel, as chances are big you will have no return

What does cc flight/trip insurance cover if return gets cancelled? They don't have to get you back?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Hi I was wondering if someone else is in a similar situation... so my flight is scheduled to leave tomorrow from tlv to nyc stopover in txl it is not showing cancelled on air berlin website and I did not receive any cancellation emails, however when I checked British airways they say its cancelled... I tried calling air Berlin and I waited over an hour so I gave up. What do I do now do I go to the airport and assume my flight was not cancelled?
