For complicated reasons (sigh, business travel), I'm likely to end up being unable to use the return leg of a rather expensive ticket I purchased with my own money. I haven't flown yet, so the ticket is still untouched and open to changes.
I'm well aware that generally in this scenario, the return leg is essentially valueless and the best I can hope for is to get the airport taxes back. However, the flights are on Japan Airlines and their T&C state:
(D) Voluntary Refunds
(1) The term "Voluntary Refund" means any refund of a Ticket other than Involuntary Refund, and the amount of the refund shall be: (a) if no portion of the trip has been made, an amount equal to the fare paid, less any cancellation fees provided in JAL's Regulations; and (b) if a portion of the trip has been made, an amount equal to the difference between the fare paid and the fare applicable to the sector for which the Ticket has been used, less any cancellation fees provided in JAL's Regulations.
...which sounds pretty positive, but is this all meaningless since the ticket is endorsed with the standard
And for reference, the company will pay for another ticket to get me back from B to A (only via a different point C), so I have no grounds to claim anything from them. I have no plans to return to B within the one-year lifetime of the ticket, so pushing the return date into the future won't be of any use (plus JAL has ridiculous prices for its one-way tickets). Finally, I've also investigated the option of rerouting the final leg of my existing ticket to C, but the flight connections just don't work.
