(Almost) Free Trip?
I cancelled an international roundtrip flight by paying a penalty of $300 because of a work related scheduling issue back in early March (which no longer is an issue). I received and verified the rest of my ticket fee as a refund from the airline at the time.
This is where it gets weird. This morning, I received an email from the airline about the same flight, requesting that I check in for my trip. My question is will they know if I take this flight? Is it possible they will catch the discrepancy? How did this happen and what might the consequences be if I decide to take the trip, since I’ve technically received a refund? I would appreciate any advice!
I don’t think you’ll actually be able to check-in. My guess is the email system isn’t quite synced with the reservations system, and you’ll get an error telling you to call or see an airport agent, who will then confirm that your ticket is invalid.
But, you can try!
