I have a flight to Chicago next Friday, the 25th, for what is essentially a job interview. But due to new circumstances that have popped up in my life, I’ve decided that there’s no way I’m going to move away from where I currently live, so going on this trip is pointless.
Problem is, I’ve discovered the plane ticket is non-refundable. I’ve Googled a bit, and my understanding is that the only way I’d have a shot at getting my money back (or at least a credit) would be if something drastic happens like a death in the family.
I would think that since it’s 12 days out, they’d be able to sell my seat now for more than I paid… but I suppose what would happen is they’d refuse my refund then sell it for more anyway.
So, is it worth it to try for a refund, or would I just be wasting my time?
