I say wait to cancel. American Airlines advised me that I don't need to cancel till 72 hours before the flight. So if there is an government ban on travel, there's a good chance airlines are going to dish out refunds.

Now Southwest says all cancellations made now mean credit is good through June 30, 2021.  So at least the deal is getting better.   :applaud:

Dang, I was going to plan a surprise visit for Zapcon 8.  Looks like it will have to wait until next year until Zapcon 9.

In the bright side, now I can go to Grinkers in the fall... Heh.

My only question: How do I get my hands on a Zapcon 8 Tee shirt with the Centipede logo on it? Those look bad ass. Yots, hook me up...

The shirts never got run, since they produce them two weeks before the show. Once things get back to normal, we may run them as a fund raiser. I’ll let you know if it happens.

I never fully trust gingers, but Malenko said he was planning on surprising us and had to cancel tickets now.  That dude and I go way, waaaaaay back.

Ehhhh.....  :dunno



Now I'm in this weird limbo with my plane tickets.  If I cancel my reservation, then I have one year from Feb 2nd to book another trip.  Where the hell am I gonna go?  Detroit? 

But if I wait it out until the government shuts down travel, I'm probably looking at a refund.  Which would roll back to my credit card and Southwest gift card.... and buy much more time on the rebook.

We still have some time to play game theory on this, I guess.

Your instincts are probably spot on here.

It only took five emails to the AirBnB host, an hour and fifteen minutes on hold to AirBnB and a week for everything to reply/process but I got my deposit back.

That should help me pay my emergency trip to the local cider bar to stock up.

Stay safe and healthy, the rest of the deposit is already going to next year’s hospitality supplies. Now I have more time to plan and stock up.

We finally had confirmation today that our honey moon was cancelled...

No surprise there!!

Instead of refunding us they will re-book it all the same for next year once we know the dates.

So see ya next year guys, Stay safe.

I cancelled my Delta Hotels reservation 2 weeks ago and they said I would get a refund.  Is it too early to expect that to have happened?

Ok I called the hotel and got an update.  First the lady said they had refunded me on March 17th but I said its not showing up on my bank records.  She assured me it had been refunded so I said can you prove it.  She said sure I'll send you and email with the refund info.  Then I get this email:

Good morning Mr. Jones,
    After looking at your printed folio I see that when the reservation was cancelled they hit the keep button instead of the refund, my sincerest apologies! I have attached that folio for you to see and I will be refunding your card today and sending an updated folio for you. You will see that by 3pm today. Thank you for your patience!

Southwest has updated their policy so that ticket cancellations now result in a credit that expires in September 2022. 

Figured that was as good as I was gonna get, so I went ahead and cancelled.

See you next year.  Maybe.
