Not saying you should have had travel insurance, nor that the whole situation is even remotely acceptable - only trying to learn how to best cover myself if I do end up booking a ticket with them.
I looked up the details of the travel insurance provided by my Citi Prestige card and it will cover up to $5000 to get you home in this type of scenario:

Covered expenses, up to $5,000 per person, per trip
■ The value of your unused transportation tickets or forfeited deposits, minus any refund or credit you receive from your travel supplier.
■ Change fees charged by your travel suppliers.
■ Additional costs to get you home if your trip is interrupted, as long as your new arrangements are within the same fare class as your original booking, such as economy or business class.
