Buyer Beware

Here's a link to a discussion on the American Express forum when National Airlines went belly up.

Apparently, American Express said that it would not give refunds to those who purchased tickets on Ch.11 National Airlines if they went to Ch.7.

Furthermore, the Aviation Consumer Action Project (ACAP) issued a warning back when US Airways went Ch.11 that American Express may not refund US Airways purchases if they go Ch.7 Here's the link

I guess the good news is that Bank of America specifically said that they would honor refunds.

Let's hope for the best, but prepare for the worse.

Well, that's nice that the DM Visa of BofA.

Of course, now I'm looking at fare deltas (what I might get back versus what it'll cost in much shorter notice) to get where I'm going. *sigh*.

Saving the world, one clue at a time.
