Which Airlines Offer Credits For Price Drops?
Many stores around the country offer their customers refunds or credits after purchasing commodities that later drop in price. It is a fairly common way to show appreciation to those who patronize one’s business and ensure that they are likely to become repeat customers. However, this policy is rarely honored amongst airline companies, at least not in any real sense.
Many airlines, such as American Airlines, Delta, and United, have policies in place that allow customers to get a refund when tickets on the same flight are offered later at substantially lower costs. However, for these airlines, in order to receive said refund, customers are charged a $200 per ticket “reservation change fee.” For many customers, the savings don’t add up to $200 per ticket, and thus most customers are not able to receive their tickets at the reduced price.
However, there are two popular US airlines that are not only willing to offer you a refund, they will do so without charging you an arm and a leg to reissue the ticket. Those airlines are Southwest Airlines and Alaska Airlines.
