Stuck in the US after flying with RJ

I booked a roundtrip for a relative AMM-ORD back in March and now they have been stuck in the US...the ticket costed $900 but now if you want to book any one way trip back to AMM it will be another 900 or so...RJ has been unhelpful. Tried to charge back the credit card and although they gave me temporary credit (who knows if it will be permanent), itís only $450 because they presumed that half of the Merchandise was provided...any help or suggestions?

You need to provide some details:
when did you booked the ticket?
what where the travelling dates?

Per RJ website they do allow flexibility at the moment, however they have stopped flying until May 25th.

Sure...was booked back in December.
From AMM to ORD early March (which was flown)
From ORD to AMM late March (which was canceled, rebooked again for April and was canceled again
Voucher wonít cut it because one way ticket for return will be very expensive

If OP has initiated a chargeback and has been issued a temporary credit, the remainder of the ticket is now cancelled. Thus, he is starting anew and the question is how to get from ORD to AMM on any carrier, presumably for as little as possible.

To do that, I would look at all connection points, not necessarily on RJ and price those out. In addition to single connections, take a look at connecting both in the US and Europe. Although not adviseable generally and there may be visa or quarantine issues depending on your citizenship and where you connect, if you put it all on a spreadsheet and sort by price, you may come up with a decent deal.

Given that this is a partially flown itinerary, (in virtue of a voucher and historical pricing) shouldn't a potential return flight for ORD-AMM be priced the same as ~half a roundtrip instead of being priced as a oneway?
