Non-Refundable Tickets Under Trump's Travel Ban

Mon Jan 30, 2017 5:08 pm

Do passengers receive a refund (if booked under non-refundable fare) if they are denied boarding due to President Trump's travel ban? What are the IATA rules on this?

This will vary depending on the airline's reprotection policy. Non refundable tickets are cheap for a reason......

I would assume they would have to be refunded, because it's not like they just cancelled without reason. I think "presidential executive order" should be an exception to the refund policy.

WestJet is currently waiving change and cancellation fees for those affected.

It obviously depends as to which law these tickets are subject to. Under European civil law, one might consider this to be a case of force majeure but I am not sure how this would work under U.S. law.
