Hence not looking on their website for info. They are going to use every legal trick in the book to hold onto cash. I wanted knowledgeable people’s opinions on the matter. Hence I’ve come here.
Aer Lingus have actually been one of the better airlines. Wizzair have been the most straightforward and are the first I've actually seen cash from. Ryanair are quite devious, even if you select a chase refund they offer a voucher a few days later. The value of the flights can be used at any point until the cash has been refunded, in 90 days or whatever the latest is. Luckily it is small amounts and for flights between Ireland and the UK a reschedule was as useful, but with the frequencies being reduced on almost all routes Im struggling to keep track of changes! easyJet are a disaster and impossible to reach on the phone, a refund has been promised, but nothing seen yet.
As per my requests i very quickly received refunds from Singapore Air and vouchers from Icelandair. I did apply for refunds on cancelled flights with EasyJet and Aer Lingus, and received emails acknowledging my requests..but no cash yet. Has anyone else had a particularly fast or slow response from these airlines?
I had an EasyJet flight booked LGW-TFS which was cancelled on the 16th March. I applied online for the refund the same day and received a "refund processed" e-mail on 7th April. The refund actually appeared in my account on the 29th April.
