There is actually going to be a press conference on tourism today so will be interesting to see what gets said.

I also don't think countries predicting the situation 9 months from now is realistic at all. There's a reason why no country is promising what will happen 9 months in the future, so I put 0 faith in this timeline.

I don't disagree. Domestic flights aren't in the air yet. I think we can both agree that without domestic service, international isn't viable. The situation could be much better in 3-6 months or much worse in 9-12. Countries with a large disparity in social economic status, a diminishing middle class and higher levels of poverty are particularly vulnerable. A conservative approach is probably best.

has anyone had any success changing the ticket to a later date? Honestly still want to keep the ticket and change it to a later date but the agent said there is no fare filed for the date I want to change it to (in November) and to just to wait.....

Has anyone managed to receive a refund or reschedule for a later date without fare difference?
I booked through Expedia US and TAAG has now cancelled both my CPT LAD and LAD GRU sectors, and the only thing they offer is rebooking with outrageous fare difference or a credit voucher valid for a year... no thanks!
Will probably result to CC chargeback in case nobody had any success with this.

This is one of those your AMEX or other credit cards might need to solve. IME trying to get third world airlines to refund is next to impossible (vietject, air asia, ryanair, Avianca being a few on my blacklist...)

Uruguay will stay closed(external borders) at least until the end of the Summer(Southern hemisphere) 2021. Announced last week by the President, confirmed by minister of Tourism.

Despite not exactly being a third world airline, Ryanair refunds have been one of the easiest I must say, second only to Wizzair (okay and Atlantic Airways who actually refunded me automatically within a couple of days).


I was thinking of just getting off in Brazil since there are no restrictions and I had a 7 hour connection anyways. I wonder whether they would have allowed me on the plane in CPT / LAD with that intention in mind but oh well, chargeback it is

alas they would check your eligibility to enter final destination, so that might catch you out

Mine's now been cancelled for late Feb. Communication is obviously terrible, but seems like they have a strict no-refund policy.. chargeback it is then.

Theoretically yes. But apparently only in person at the CPT office. I asked for an email/phone number and this was the response:
"Sorry to inform you, due covid-19 desease, contacts and e-mails are not available at the moment, we advise you to get through the office please."
That was after they told me GOL would be responsible for the tix:
"Nils , sorry to inform your e-ticket has started with us due the last trip will be in another airline, we advise to get contact from that airline."
Highly professional operation they've got going there
