Because I’m, you know, a bit of a mental, I hate uncertainty. Seeing the writing on the wall, I cancelled my June trip with Disney and that all went very smoothly.
That just left the flight. Virgin Atlantic recently wrote to me saying they had a new scheme whereby you could convert your ticket to an open ticket and book a new flight at some point between now and May 2022.
Perfect, I thought. So I signed up.
That was a big mistake. Huge.
First, my understanding is that had I waited until they cancelled the flight I would have been legally entitled to a full refund. I feel scammed.
Second, my original booking was in Economy (I know, right?) which I then upgraded to Premium Economy. The open ticket makes no mention of the upgrade. I feel scammed twice.
So now I hate Virgin Atlantic and I feel like a massive idiot.
Don’t be like me.
