I bought a ticket on BA.com 3 days ago and the price as dropped since then (and, I’m beyond the 24-hour cooling off period, so cannot cancel it). As expected, BA will not give me the benefit of the difference. Do you know if there’s any way to go about to get a refund of the difference? Also, is this unique to BA or do the US-based airlines also follow this policy? Reason I ask is because of the concept of “price adjustment’ we have here in the US. It was something the BA agent was clueless about.
@ Arun — Nope, no way to get the difference, and that’s the case with most airlines. At the end of the day you should always buy airfare when you’re happy with the price. It could go down, but it could also go up, and obviously when it goes up they’re not going to charge you the difference after ticketing.
