Rats abondoning the ship?

Oh please, make it so. I have a return ticket with them to come back to JFK on Sept. 24th. That will be perfect.
I called AZ today, and to my surprise they said even though I have a non refundable ticket, they would refund the tax portion of it if I wanted. That is almost half of the price of the ticket. But probably if I wait and they go bankrupt I would not even get that. I guess I will wait and see, just like AZ.

If you paid with a credit card, can't you still request a chargeback in case AZ does go belly up?

Short answer: YES. At least if you live in the USA; the laws and the credit card companies here will protect you in the event that an airline goes sideways...at least if you are paying with a credit card and not with a debit card (from your bank account).

I have posted this in another thread, but here it is. Surprise, surprise... I have bought the ticket using UA Mileage Plus Visa Credit Card, and I live in the US. Actually this was two weeks ago, and don't know why but I wasn't aware that AZ was in this bad shape. After all the AZ threads here, I called Visa to find out what they can do, and to my surprise, nothing. They say if AZ goes bankrupt I will get zero from them. Then I wanted to get travel insurance to cover the ticket cost in case of AZ to go into financial default. No insurance co. would insure my travel after hearing the word AZ.
So I wait and see.
