I recently bought an in and outbound ticket from Emirates. Flying from Lyon-Dubai-Johannesburg and back on the same route. The outbound journey is an "economy flex" fare and the inbound journey is "economy flex plus." At the time when I bought it, I suspected I might have to cancel the inbound journey, and therefore I chose flex plus, as it offered cancellations free of charge, where the economy flex fare charges 150euro.
My question now is, do I cancel the inbound/flex plus/JHB-DUB-LYON before utilizing the outbound flight or after or does it not make any difference with regards to the refund?
I read through the terms and conditions, but struggling to make sense of it.
