If my daughter is booked on a flight home ( on the 26th) if it gets cancelled, do they automatically Rebook her, or can i get a refund?

Sara

Regarding the IAD (Washington, DC) flights, United said they’re flying through the 17th, and canceling for all of April.
But what is the status of the flights from the 18th through the 31st?
They haven’t confirmed anything about them, either that they’re flying them or that they’re canceling them.
Rosh Chodesh Nissan, when all the boys start their Pesach breaks, is on March 26.
What are the chances United will cancel their flights at the last minute?
Should we reschedule them now, or wait? It’s nerve-wracking!

If my child flies home from Israel and of March and has his return ticket to TLV and the end of April which looks as if they are cancelling, will he be placed on an Ewr flight or just refunded

Moshe

Hi I just booked a return ticket for April 19th from Washington to tel aviv. Why are they still booking them if they are going to cancel them?

Yehuda

How about JFK – TLV

Bachur

Valuable information. Thank you!!!

Yochai

TLV-IAD no longer showing up for April

PS

My trip to Israel originates from IAD on 3/25/20 with a return on 4/5/20. So my questions are: first of all I will not be able to board the flight because I will be in Israel less than 14 days and my return flight is going to be cancelled so will United refund the fare without a hassle and what is the best way to approach this with the airline? Also, is the airline obligated to notify of the new restrictions?

Jo

I am on flight UA91 on Mar 25, which I see in the post will still be going, however I want to push up the flight. Does it make sense that United is telling me I have to pay for the difference in fare?

Driving

Yes

ua iad

Booked an award ticket one way in economy EWR-IAD-TLV for APR 19, I called to add lap infant child and they are charging me $395. They claim that it’s 10% last ticket sold for $3,300 at Y fare. Any info how to deal with this?

Ilana Dallas
