I got the same email even though they cancelled an entire leg of my upcoming booking! Yes, I'd like to confirm that I would like to be stuck halfway through my itinerary through no fault of my own...

Presumably someone somewhere working in the industry might have concluded that refusing refunds in this manner is less damaging to shareholder value than bleeding more cash. By the time this winds...

Even if it were lent to AC at that rate, 0.25% for one year on $1B is still $2.5M of what would have at least been someone else's $.

Interesting question. Or if one joins the class action suit. I would not expect AC to be able to keep track of that, though, since it's just a little too complicated for their fragile fortran.

Made my own banana bread today. But I don't have the equipment to package slices in individual clear plastic wrappers that you can tear open... Then again do I really want to remember the PRouge...

I bet the bureaucrats thought long and hard about the "could". At the end of the day they're asking travellers to give airlines a potentially two year interest-free loan.

Just wait...

Unless of course they announce more layoffs. That seems to bring the price up. Correlation only, though.

How convenient that AC changed their "policy" and then really ramped up the cancellations (or so it seems to me). Quite frankly I don't care about their "policy". What matters is the law. In what...

I'd recommend trying to call and report back here. My attempt this morning for a refund on a recently AC-cancelled booking was met with a very firm "no". Credit only. I did not accept, and will wait...

I don't disagree, provided that the itinerary we purchased goes ahead. There's a big difference between a passenger deciding to cancel a trip they purchased and an airline cancelling it instead. If...

AC has roughly that amount in cash and short term investments. A quarter's worth of revenue is less at say $5B. But with few buying tickets for a good quarter, let's say, and all those "refunds" on...

One of my domestic flights just got cancelled and my ticket rebooked. The cancellation options before and after this happened remained the same. An $1,800 ticket offered option 1: $94.40 to original...

The only reason this is/might be happening is because the market puts up with it. If passengers spoke differently with their wallets, this would not happen.

This is logical thinking. Unfortunately we're in illogical times. As our PM said, nothing is off the table. If this drags out for months or over a year until a vaccine is ready, and/or if travel...

I'm far more concerned of another bankruptcy and thousands of passengers losing the credits entirely.

Can't, I'd say, is if they actually can't make the payment now. I don't think that that is the case. It's entirely possible that they're hoping people will go for this because it's less hassle than...

I think right now we are looking at a "doesn't want to" situation rather than a "can't".
