I was going through my Twitter feed this morning when I noticed that Amol, @PointsToPointB mentioned that his fare rule says “REFUNDABLE/CXLFEE/CHGFEE-BG” while nonrefundable United tickets say “NONREF”.
Since my ticket from Wideroe Airlines was confirmed and ticketed, I decided to check the details of my own ticket, which was from LAX-DXB for $271.
Lo and behold, the fare rule does say REFUNDABLE, so you can theoretically cancel your ticket without penalty. But why would you? Well, it’s there if you need to cancel without penalty for what it’s worth.
Since I am a Premier Silver elite on United, I would also have complimentary premier upgrades on the LAX-SFO, SFO-IAD, and IAD-LAX legs which isn’t too bad. I would take these upgrades with a grain of salt since Premier Silver elites have a hard time clearing these routes.
Another interesting aspect of this ticket is that I would be earning 19,182 award miles on LAX-SFO-IAD-DXB-IAD-LAX not including my Premier bonus! If I was a 1K, I would be earning 38,364 redeemable miles for $271 at an astounding rate of 0.7 cpm.
