Our Customer of the Week responded to our requested quote to say that, as often happens, she had already found a flight on United Airlines for their unaccompanied minor. After they heard our quote, she replied that they would contact us in the future.
Since we knew the age of her child, the airports she would use and the dates, we thought that she could pay less for those flights. We texted her back that she could save $250 if she changed her flight. Most parents at this point just think either it’s not possible or that it’s just too much trouble to change.
Just for everyone to know, all airlines have a 24-hour window after the time of booking to get a full refund for the ticket purchased. American Airlines lately has been a bit confusing (I believe intentionally), stating in some places that there is no 24-hour window. But in reality there is.
Part of this customer’s impatience and the rush to buy the tickets so quickly is that she didn’t think there was an alternative to paying the $320 unaccompanied minor fee with the one-stop flights she found.
But we found nonstop flights for her child without requiring the pricey airline chaperone assistance fees! She and her husband had perhaps seen these flights online but assumed that they would also have to pay the fee with these flights and since the airfare was a bit more expensive, they went with United.
But our Customers of the Week, Chad Chidister and his wife, Brandice Chidester actually cancelled her flight with United and booked with us! Think about it, in a matter of an hour, she and her husband saved $250!
Kudos to our Customer of the Week for trusting us! For that they won a discount on the purchased ticket in addition to the saving of $250!
