So I booked a flight with British Airways from the United States (transferring in the UK) to Sweden months ahead of time before COVID-19 was on the radar. Sweden has now closed its borders to visitors. This, of course, means that we can't use the tickets even if the fight is still happening.
It seems like the only option the company is offering is a voucher but we don't want to accept that, we feel like there is a reasonable fear that British Airways might go bankrupt making the voucher useless, we rather just get the money back and rethink this trip for 12 to 24 months at least.
When I booked the ticket they had a 40 dollar cancellation fee but that policy now seems to be gone. I guess it just conveniently disappeared.
Do we have any right or options to get the money back, it feels a little sketchy that they can just take the money and run.
