Did the mistake to cancel a flight that was going to be cancelled anyway (airport closed in the country I was supposed to fly to in Africa on Monday), only got a voucher. My original fare (R) allowed cancellation up to a 1 day prior to departure. Normal ? I understand it's my mistake, but also seem a bit weird (I know, not the end of the world). A small premium could have helped.
