Ask Anita

Can I get a refund if I don't want to fly because of the latest terrorist actions?

Dear Anita,

I have purchased American Airlines tickets online for travel to Hartford, CT, in October. Now we're not sure we want to go because of all the problems in the New York City area. Is there any recourse we can take to cancel these tickets because of the fear of traveling by plane at this time?

Dear Gloria,

As of September 17, 2001 you cannot. American's policy states that anyone ticketed for travel between September 11 and September 25 will be reaccomodated. All tickets issued for travel after September 25th will not be eligible for refunds or changes. Your best bet is to keep checking with American to see if they extend these dates.

I hope I've been helpful. Happy travels!
