Why are Airline Travel Waivers for So Few Days in Advance?

Why are Airline Travel Waivers for So Few Days in Advance?

  1. wilve

    I just received a travel waiver from JetBlue that covered my flight to Boston, which I am planning change, this weekend. However, I can only avoid the change fees if I book up until Tuesday March 6th, which isn’t useful to me since I only have the weekends free to travel.

    Is it common for airlines to be this inflexible with their change period during travel waivers? Do they usually just expect the lack of change fees to make up for not ignoring the difference in fare? My ticket was so cheap because it was in the off season; everything else I’m looking at now costs a hundred or more over the cost of my original flight!

    Will they give you a full refund instead? Then you could book for sometime this fall, in the off-season?

    Sometimes they’re more flexible, it really depends on the carrier, storm, and expected impact. I’d suggest giving them a call and seeing if they’ll let you rebook for another weekend.
