“Original ticketing date.”

“Original ticketing date.”

  1. Anonymous

    When is the “original ticketing date”? Is it when I [I]bought[/I] the ticket or when I was [I]scheduled[/I] to fly? A trip that the virus is probably going to cause me to cancel has said that I can use the credit from a year of the “original ticketing date.” I can’t ask the vendor because they are overwhelmed with questions at this time. Thank you!

  2. Gaurav

    It is when you bought the ticket unfortunately.

    When were you supposed to travel? And by vendor you mean airline, or OTA? I think some airlines are offering up to 6-month extensions, particularly for upcoming flights that definitely will not occur – for instance, tickets bought in May 2019 for a April 2020 flight.

    Depending on which airline you’re flying, if you wait for the airline to cancel your flight, you could get a full refund. If you cancel, then the restriction of original ticketed date applies. AA refunded four of my trips that they cancelled. Each airline has its own policies. Most are extending the rebooking on canceled flights through the end of this calendar year, if they cancel your flight(s). Who are you ticketed with?

    Well, that totally sucks! I bought my tickets in Sept. for a flight at the end of May. The only time I can reschedule is for the end of NEXT May. Not helpful to me at all.

    I am supposed to fly with United on May 25th to Italy. I bought the tickets in Sept and have to go when I am off in the summer, so that sucks for me. Thanks for your reply!

    By “vendor” I meant the travel agency I bought the ticket through. The airline is United. I bought my ticket in Sept and am supposed to fly to Italy (yeah, right) May 25th.

    If UA hasn’t yet cancelled your May flights to they soon will more than likely. Here is the UA policy as of 11 days ago [URL]https://onemileatatime.com/united-airlines-refund-one-year/[/URL]
    You will have one year to rebook if UA cancels your flights.
