@Bob
thanks for the advice. I would not have thought of using Avios for that trip otherwise!. I just checked BA's site and unfortunately BA wants to charge ~$130 as surcharge so that's a no go considering you can buy the ticket for less than that.

@thadeusd3
I know!. I was just too quick to pull the trigger cos I am new to the traveling community on the whole (and have no prior experience with mistake fares) and my experience with slickdeals has made me an "Act fast, think later" guy. LOL.

@BlueEngineer and @afrozenfyre
thank you for that info!. I'm going to call them in a little bit and try to have one cancelled.

once again, thank you for the help guys!

The penalty for no show is 150USD.

@Jinxed - I did see the $100+ in charges.I was trying to book online and having trouble.So called my local BAEC center. I was quoted a totalof $42 for two SriLankan legs leading to MLE. So you might get a better answer there.

Just report CC as lost so the airline can't charge the no show fee

I expect breakage rates to be high.


I was thinking everyone who went to MLE would go to the Maldives. lol

Looking at just a random fare it seems no-show fee is assessed when rebooking


CHANGES AGAINST NO SHOW
- A NO-SHOW FOR A FLIGHT IS CONSIDERED WHEN A
PASSENGER FAILS TO USE THE RESERVATION OF THE
SCHEDULED FLIGHT.
- FAILURE TO OCCUPY A RESERVED SEAT ON ANY SEGMENT
OF THE ITINERARY WILL RESULT IN ALL SUBSEQUENT
SEGMENTS OF THE ITINERARY BEING CANCELLED. IN
SUCH CASES NO-SHOW FEE WILL APPLY.
- IN CASE OF NO-SHOW ONLY ONE FEE IS TO BE CHARGED
I.E. EITHER THE NO-SHOW FEE OR THE
REISSUE/REVALIDATION FEE WHICHEVER IS HIGHER AND
NOT BOTH.

I mean go beyond just MLE while in the Maldives -- but it isn't all that cheap to go beyond MLE.

I actually found some workable Cathay J availability to get myself to CMB the week I booked my return ticket for.

Talk about painful though, going from CX J to EK Y

What was the reason for the cancellation in the message?

Cancellation

My 2 tickets were cancelled just a few minutes ago. The notation in the GDS was: FARE LISTED IN ERROR-BKG CANCELLED-REBOOK AT
APPLICABLE FARE.
I was able to have the tickets voided out within the 24 hour cancellation period.
If someone is on the fence about actually using these it might be best to cancel today rather than wait until its too late to have tickets voided.
