    When is there a right to a refund?

    • If you are allocated a cheaper seat. Should this happen you will be refunded the difference in cost in vouchers;
    • In involuntary cases (for example missing a connection through a fault of the company) you will receive a refund of the full amount of the service you did not receive.
    Under what circumstances is there no right to a refund?
    • If you are allocated a different seat, but one that is of the same type;
    • If you cancel your flight you will not be eligible for a refund, although you may receive a voucher to use on the same service within 12 months of issue;
    • If you book an emergency exit seat without meeting the requirements.

    What happens if the aircraft type changes?

    Our system will replace your booked seat with another of the same type. The chosen/allocated seat row may also be changed; however, the system will make sure you are allocated a new seat of the same type. For example: seat 4C, which is in the “Prefered Zone”, may be changed to seat 6A, which is also in the “Prefered Zone”.
