While I am booking for Thai Airlines, I have searches for few others also, but could not come to any conclusion.

Travelling from A->B with stopover in bangkok. Same PNR, etc.

The T&C just says "Permitted with fee XXX $".

I am kind of lost, does this mean if I cancel, I pay XXX, or XXX * 2 since technically these are two flights.

  • What exactly is permitted with fee – Matt Douhan Jul 19 at 5:05
  • these are not two flights, as booking and ticketing concerns technically these are two legs / segments within the same flight / ticket. see my answer. – Obmerk Kronen Jul 19 at 5:49
  • Can you provide the fare code? It should appear somewhere on your booking or e-ticket receipt. Also can you clarify the flights involved? That way it might be possible to look up the full detailed fare rules which may be more precise. – jcaron Jul 19 at 9:31

The whole question depends on the exact terms of the ticket, fare AND the booking agent ( whether it is a site, or a real agent, or even the company itself.

That being said - and speaking from own ( quit big ) experience in changing and cancelling - The Changes / Cancellation fees in almost always for the TICKET as a whole and not the LEG / SEGMENT. I actually can not remember it ever being different..

But if for example, you will make changes to a single LEG inside of the same ticket - different fees / regulations might apply depending, again, on airline. ( for example not change first leg and make longer stay-over with second )

That being said ( again ) the best way is to contact the airline directly.

A small tip addendum:

Being a business traveler, I travel a lot ( 4-8 flights a month ) I find myself changing / cancelling flights almost 70%-80% of the time. If you are thinking already now about cancellation / changes - or if there is a chance ( even slight ) in you eventually doing so - my own tip and opinion is that it is always better to opt for a higher price ticket with changes permitted. Otherwise in some cases you can simply lose the whole ticket.
