When is Refundable Latitude Not Refundable?

Say, this:

Air Transportation Charges
Departing Flight - Latitude 604.99
Return Flight - Latitude 604.99
Surcharges 132.02
Carrier surcharges 24.00
Taxes, Fees and Charges
Canada Airport Improvement Fee 25.00

etc and ........ etc

Total before options (per passenger) 1508.88
Number of passengers x 2
Total with options 3017.76

----

That's for a return flight. Trying to book it one day, the shysters were asking for $250 more per flight, for the return.

So having booked this, to lock in the upgrade on the return (which I got), is this fully refundable for the outbound?

Or is there some thing that they have with this Latitude code that isn't really Latitude?

Did you call in and ask?
I'm curious as well!

Also. Where are you flying to/from. This might affect the rules?

Thanks

No, before calling in to ask, I will seek the wisdom of the folks here. More honesty here....

The most restrictive rules apply. If one fare basis on a ticket allows refunds without penalty and the other doesn't, there will be no refund allowed.

So.... I should be able to cancel the outbound, and keep the inbound, with the upgrade?

If not, explain to me what part of refundable is not refundable.

With a re-fare of the ticket to match your new travel plans, yes. So if the one-way fare is more expensive than the half r/t you've paid for you should expect that an add/collect will apply.

What you're actually suggesting is a change, not a cancellation/refund and that part of the rules you posted will apply:

All your base are belong to us.

I'm sorry, I'm not trying to be stupid here.

If I book the return only, its $200 higher.

If I book it as a return *refundable* Latitude, it's $200 less.

So if I book the return, and then cancel the outbound, why would it not be refundable?

Thank you. That was a more useful response.

Because it is only refundable as a round trip. When you try to drop the outbound, you're not refunding part of the original ticket, you're changing it to a different fare basis.

With those kinds of prices though, what about Tango + Latitude? Are we saying that would be cheaper, since an RT Lat = OW T+ + 200?
