c) Make sure you read the terms and conditions of the ticket.

As it clearly mentions, the passenger will not get a refund back to the bank, however, the total amount will be converted into credit and stored under the same confirmation number and the same passenger can use it to book any ticket with United Airlines and its destinations within Jul 15, 2022.

It doesn’t mean every ticket is non-refundable, the rules are different for different types of tickets and classes of service.

Side story: Many people use to say,” Oh how hard can it be to just give me a refund, or I’m changing just the time of my flight, I shouldn’t have to pay anything extra, or just correct my name, its just one letter common. But it’s not simple as it sounds. It has a long process to change anything after a reservation is confirmed.

It actually feels good to complain about my work, If you know what I mean, I can’t shout at the customers even if they are stupid. Anyway, we’ll talk about the rules and restrictions and my problems later. THANKS FOR LISTENING


d) After you read the terms and conditions of the ticket, enter your email address to receive the cancellation details and click on cancel trip.

There are no more screenshots because I don’t want to cancel my flight. But if you do, it will also ask for the Date of birth of the passenger. Fill it up and click cancel.

AND…… It’s done.
