The #unplannedlockdown is hurting airline travellers in a big way as, not just that ppl are having to cancel, postpone plans or travel,n are unsure of when will they be able to fly out, but airlines seem to enjoy making profits out of cancellation charges n other fees

Some of the issues that have cropped up for air passengers thanks to #LockdownWithoutPlan and lack of clarity of cancellation and refund policy during this period

Why did airlines start booking tickets for period aft Apr15 during lockdown amidst no clarity of lockdown extn

Why r airlines refunding only partial sum back to passengers for tickets booked for travel during #Lockdown1 & #lockdown2?

Why r airlines,booking portals refunding passengers by way of vouchers instead of cash back in accounts for tickets booked for travel during lockdown?
