  • Airline ticket refund wait

    Was wondering if anyone has been lucky to having their air tickets refunded?
    Thai airways have cancelled our flights to Thailand in october, So have requested our refund via Travel Trolley. Only been waiting just under 2 weeks but expecting a very long wait. Travel Trolley quoted us a 30 day wait, I be very shocked if its that quick.

    A friend of mine is still waiting for his refund from his flight in April from Thai Airways.
    Obviously i am aware of the problems this airline is having.
    We opted for the refund and could have gone for the voucher.

    Been waiting 3 months and 3 days so far with netflights from Eva air. The last email I received was 6 weeks ago saying it’s taking an extremely long time to get money back off the airlines as they are trying their best to not pay out

      My flight from Bangkok to Manchester on 4th July with Cathay was cancelled by them in early June. Chose refund instead of voucher and money was returned a couple of weeks later.

        Thai have cancelled my outbound flight for October but have not cancelled the corresponding return flight in December.

        Travelbag say that if I ask for a refund now then I am cancelling the flight and there will be a cost implication. So advise I wait until Thai cancel my return leg.

        Mmmmmh!!

          Nonsense, you are entitled to a full refund of the entire ticket. Refer them to EC261/2004 Article 8(1) which states full reimbursement and such reimbursement must be made within SEVEN DAYS!

          Contact them and quote the law above, tell them you require an immediate refund and if that is not forthcoming within 7 days you will instigate a chargeback via your card issuer.

            I am amazed travel trolley still exists. I tried to get hold of them for a refund for an EVA Air flight and they just disappeared along with my cash. Only book direct with airlines with proven policies on refunds and flexible tickets

              If you can't get hold of them go for charge back via your bank. I have done this before and had the money back same day.

                In fairness i booked our tickets way before all this corona outbreak happened, And have used Travel trolley before with no problems.
                Nobody expected the problem the airlines are having.
                When i phoned the travel agent they answered straight away, I will wait until my month's quoted time waiting time is up.
                If i have to i will contact my credit card, And ask them to get the money on my behalf.

                    Why is it a bit late in the day. The flight was cancelled, wasn't it.

                      I have just had a mid March flight refund from Ryan Air. Five months, but at least I have the money.

                        Re Thai Lion Air: did get an email regarding a refund or flight credit, not interested in flight credit so periodically send emails asking when the refund will happen, also added them to LINE and sent relevant details asking the same.
                        Re Nepal Airlines: do follow their updates regarding ticket extensions IE mine would be valid up-to DEC 2021 atm or full refund (penalty free) but cannot get a response to enact a refund, tonight sent 14 emails to various offices hoping one will respond .

                          I had tickets for May, the flight was canceled. The airline offered, at my choice, to exchange tickets for a voucher, change the departure date or refund. I changed the date to a later date, I really hope that soon Thailand will be opened for tourists.

                            Just had 28/10 out and 9/12 return cancelled by KLM. These were originally for beginning of October, but were cancelled by KLM and rebooked, at the later date, only to be cancelled again. I have applied for a refund via the website, but have not received any response as yet.
                            Just hope things open up in the New Year.
