Do we know this? And do we know exactly what is being refunded? If it's just the ORD-SDF segment, it could be as low as $10 or $20. (Indeed, this is probably how Dao was selected, since his ticket was LAX-ORD-SDF. These often price out so that the long leg is all but $10 or $20 of the fare.) If so, this is likely to backfire "Sorry you had to watch this. Here's $10. Now go away. Buy yourself a hot dog or sometin.")
