If you’re wondering are airline tickets refundable, it depends largely on the airline’s policy and ticket type. In general, most discount plane tickets don’t allow a refund, but will allow you to use the ticket as credit against a future flight. There’s nearly always a charge to do that. If your ticket covers different airlines or was purchased through a travel agent, it can be even more complicated. Most full fare coach tickets, as well as business and first class tickets allow a refund. However, even a non refundable plane ticket can be refunded in some situations; if your flight is canceled, or delayed by more than a certain length of time, you can generally get a refund. Sickness or death of a family member may mean you’re allowed a refund too. Best advice: make sure you understand before buying exactly what your options are.
