Long time lurker, first time poster...
So it looks like DH is cutting back Vegas flights after all...I was booked on the redeye returning the night of October 31 and was automatically rebooked on the morning flight. Do I have the option of requesting a refund in light of the fact that the new flight leaves about 12 hours earlier than the original flight, or will I just have to request a credit? Thanks.

Quoting Abefroman329 (Reply 6): They gave me a credit for future travel but waived the cancellation fee - not too bad either. Thanks for your help.
I've had flights changed on me before and gotten emails from services like Orbitz that claim I can get a refund if the total number of minutes between the original flight(s) and the new flight(s) is greater than 90. I've never tried to get a refund yet, but it sounds like it might be possible depending on where you buy the ticket from. In any case, it sounds like you did alright.

Just read this, "Delta reducing flights to save fuel" Most likely flights to be affected, early morning, and late evening.

I think in casese like that you should be entitled to a refund -- and unfortunately, you often have to fight to get it. I always suspect that airline staff are trained to give you nothing without disputing it with you
