Air Canada Finally Offering Full Refunds On COVID-19 Affected Flights

Air Canada has announced that they are now offering full refunds on flights that were affected by COVID-19 since February 2021. This covers all flights that were cancelled by Air Canada or voluntarily cancelled by passengers. This obviously includes people that were previously issued a travel voucher or miles as compensation (full refund replaces these, not in addition to). You must request your full refund by June 13, 2021. In addition for flights booked after April 13th if a flight is cancelled or rescheduled by more than three hours a full refund will be offered.

Absolutely pathetic that it has taken Air Canada this long. The DoT had previously issued two enforcement notices to airlines reminding them of their responsibility to provide refunds cancelled flights and that they must do so in a timely manner, Air Canada claimed that this wasn’t the case at all and they didn’t have to provide a refund. It’s disappointing that the DoT never issued anything other than those enforcement notices.

Our Verdict

You can view the other Ambassador status benefits here. Personally I don’t think Ambassador status is worth it even with this bonus, but if you’re already paying for it and find it useful then this is definitely a nice freebie.

Southwest Devalues Points – Now Worth A Base Rate Of 1.2¢ (Down From 1.28¢)

Southwest has made a no notice devaluation to the value of points. Southwest points are worth a fixed value when redeeming for wanna get away fares (Southwest’s lowest fare class), the value is now 83 points per $1 (1.2¢) previously it was 78 points per $1 (1.28¢).

It’s important to remember that when redeeming with points you only pay the base fare and the mandatory TSA fee of $5.6 for one ways and $11.20 for round trip flights, whereas cash flights also include other fees and charges. That means when the other fees & charges make up a higher portion of the ticket (generally on lower cost flights) the value of Southwest points increases. It also means you always get more than the listed value.  For example:

  • Flight one: $428 or 31,562 points (1.36¢ per point)
  • Flight two: $59 or 3,443 points (1.71¢ per point)

It’s not a huge surprise that Southwest is devaluing points again, below is a list of when devaluations have occurred in the past:

  • 2011-2014 (March): All points were worth a fixed 1.67¢ per point
  • 2014 (April) – 2015 (April, 16th): All points were worth a fixed 1.43¢
  • 2015 (April 17th) – 2016 (April 19th or so): Fares in the lowest class were worth a fixed 1.43¢, fares in other classes were on a sliding scale
  • 2016 (April 19th or so) – 2018 (April 3rd): Fares in the lowest class are worth a fixed 1.39¢, fares in other classes were on a sliding scale
  • 2018 April 3rd – Today: Fares in the lowest class are worth a fixed 1.28¢, fares in other classes were on a sliding scale

That being said it’s always extremely disappointing when airlines make devaluations, especially when no notice is given and to make matters worse a lot of people have been sitting on points due to the fact a global pandemic has been occurring.
