I booked tickets to go from LHR to LAX, hoping to go to San Diego Comic-Con this year. However
However, I hadn't appreciated that it might be impossible to get a ticket for SDCC, so I booked in advance. 

As you might guess, I didn't get a ticket for SDCC so I'd like to cancel the tickets; however, Expedia haven't been helpful, telling me they can only move the dates (and only within a year of the booking date, so I can't use them for Comic-Con next year) or cancel them and refund me only the tax - £100 of a £1200 ticket.
