DOT新规要求重大航变和取消必须退款,疫情代金券永久有效

前两天DOT提了个新提案,主要有两点新要求。第一是明确了“significant change”和“cancellation”的定义,要求航司在这些情况下必须退款:

  • Changes that affect the departure and/or arrival times by three hours or more for a domestic flight or six hours or more for an international flight;
  • Changes to the departure or arrival airport;
  • Changes that increase the number of connections in the itinerary; and
  • Changes to the type of aircraft flown if it causes a significant downgrade in the air travel experience or amenities available onboard the flight.

对于航班取消的定义:

Under the proposal, a canceled flight would mean a flight that was published in a carrier’s Computer Reservation System at the time of the ticket sale but was not operated by the carrier.

第二是要求因疫情原因(不限于covid-19,包括未来任何疫情)提供的voucher、credit不允许过期。如果航司收到政府的疫情补助,则需要退款。

The proposal would also require that airlines and ticket agents provide passengers flight credits or vouchers that are valid indefinitely when passengers are unable to fly for certain pandemic related reasons, such as government-mandated bans on travel, closed borders, or passengers advised not to travel to protect their health or the health of other passengers. Further, under the proposal, airlines and ticket agents that receive significant government assistance related to a pandemic would be required to issue refunds, in lieu of non-expiring travel credits or vouchers.

新规有90天公示期,可以提出反馈意见。

11月就要过期的能保住吗?会回溯么

不清楚啊,我感觉这个意思是以后因为疫情新issue的credit不再过期了?
当然也可能航空公司大发善心学southwest一样自己宣布不过期

永不过期的话目测ua要被薅秃了,人均几千刀的future credit

那凉了。现在的趋势是截流,起码delta和ua是不会续命的

要等90天,还不一定能通过,楼上的两位还是花掉吧

这个只是 proposed rule, 并没有确定成法规。
时间上可能赶不及。retro-active,按照航司以往的track record, don’t count on it.

不过期这个,通过以后好多撸点,比如

  • 开卡消费充值
  • capitalone vx 的每年300刀

等等等等,不怕过期没用掉了。

有这个东西之后每年AMEX那些报销最后可以拼成一张一万的机票了 :yaoming:

那也是得是疫情原因啊,也不是那么容易的

可以订一个回国/台湾/日本等地区的机票。
国内没那么快开放吧. 所以不就是由于疫情无法入境么。
