Few airlines still sell open return tickets (that do not require reservations to be made). The exception is round-the-world and visit-a-continent fares which do still allow this. However, virtually all of them sell changeable tickets that can be changed at any time. On the flip side it may not be cheap. That said the ticket validity is usually limited to ...

Airlines will bump up a departure time if they feel they can get the plane out earlier. It helps their on-time performance stats and gets everyone to their destination a little earlier. But this is done only when they are certain everyone will be onboard earlier. The decision would likely be based on 1) all originating passengers have checked in XX ...

At the very least, Air China does (source). China Eastern has also started - for both domestic AND international flights. A summary article on this notes that Hainan Air is also introducing it in China as well.

This is a common misleading trick on behalf of booking websites, where they show one price all the way up to the payment screen, and then add a mysterious "tax" or "booking fee". So the answer is that, yes, there are additional taxes to be paid on each flight, but the booking website chooses not to show them until the last moment.

You can look at a related question which has already discussed issues related to compensation and specifically with Frontier Airline: Can you be legally bumped or taken off a flight AFTER boarding? Having mentioned that. As have already been mentioned in that question the policies related to flight delays or cancellations are set by airline alone: ...

I don't think you'll have much luck: The ticket is not refundable. Passengers are different. The number of passengers are different. You are changing the flight (yes, even though you are flying the reverse leg, to an airline this is a separate flight). The only thing I can think of in this situation is to change the name on the ticket to your wife (there ...

The advertised features are all listed here, and you've already listed the important ones: SIA Premium Economy Per AusBT, the A380 seat (19.5") is one inch wider than the B777-300ER version (18.5"). Seat pitch (38") and all other seat features are otherwise identical.

Having traveled to Vietnam from Shanghai, I would recommend you Air Asia from Shanghai to Ho Chi Minh City. Considering you are looking for the lowest cancellation fees I would assume price is a huge factor. Their cancellation fees could be as low as 270 CNY. Also their ticket price will be almost the same as Cathay Pacific. This highly depends on where you ...

I used to work at one of the 3 big Chinese airlines and they had fully refundable fares when you buy the full fare ticket. Try to do it online but don't just look at the cheapest ticket, look at the highest price economy ticket and chances are that ticket will be fully refundable. Keep in mind those tickets will run around $2000 round trip from US to China ...

Talk to a flesh-and-blood travel agent, or the airline directly, and get a fully refundable fare. Most airlines offer these, but they're not necessary available online. From Shanghai, try eg. Korean Airlines.

Same tickets. No difference in service. There is a difference in service between the budget and the flat bed class, but no difference otherwise. As you point out, the A330 suggests AirAsia X and the fact that it's a flight over 4 hours also suggests that; so it's an AirAsia X flight, whatever they're saying it as. Judging by the general quality of their ...

If the airline brings the person to the country without satisfying the visa and/or passport requirements for the destination country, the airline is responsible for taking the person back, and may also be fined. However, in your case, you are saying the person does meet the destination country's visa and passport requirements. He is just denied entry for ...

Yes, nothing keeps you from booking every part of your trip separately. There's a few things to keep in mind though: If you travel on separate tickets, your baggage will probably not be checked through. That means you will have to collect your luggage and check it in for the new flight in Singapore. So if you have check-in luggage, you will need to ...

You cannot avoid problems like this when travelling. It is like trying to avoid traffic when driving. Maybe you live in a village and you travel to work at 5 am. Even so, one day you will get stuck in a jam. It happens. If you're taking connecting flights, you will get delayed and at some point you will miss a flight. It is a normal thing. The best you can ...

According to GOL website, "The Brazil Airpass must only be sold and ticketed outside Brazil", then, I assume that they just sell it by travel agents. Anyway, here is the source, you can find more info: http://www.voegol.com.br/en-us/agencias/Paginas/airpasses.aspx Email: contatcus@golnaweb.com.br About TAM, have you checked this website? ...
