    Gulf Air - | Flights refund 3rd Mar 18 at 11:35 AM
    I am new to all this. I have recently purchased a ticket to fly to India from Heathrow on the 9th of March and return on the 31st.
    It looks like I might not be able to make it. is outright saying the ticket is non-refundable and Gulf Air is saying it up to if they want to help me.
    The adviser at is 100% sure the ticket is non-refundable and there is nothing they can do about it.
    I am bit worried now. Is this always the case with long haul flights? It's 360!
    It's a big amount during the normal times and it's more so during these difficult times (the reason why I am not travelling)
    Can anyone guide me on how to go about claiming a refund?
    I have paid the ticket to through Paypal funded via Barclaycard credit card.

    The fact that Amadeus says no changes are allowed.

    I would be enlightened if you could share the fare basis you are looking at.

    Oh and glad your now able to travel OP, may already be on your way.

    I'm not looking at any fare class, I merely go by what the OP posted earlier.
