New Arrival

After  purchasing ticket my husband was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis.  Advised by his doctor not to fly (going to elevated altitude) or be around large gatherings.  (He was going to a wedding).   Ticket cancelled, plus $75 fee....Told he could use the credit for a year.   Guess what?   HE IS NOT ABLE TO FLY!!!!!   Retired on a fixed this the best you can do??  Seems like there should be some flexibility in your rules.  This wasn't just a decision not to go, it was recommended by his doctor.

Are you sure you're talking about the right airline? There's no $75 fee. Fake post? Either way, you purchased a nonrefundable fare. Refundable fares are available that provide cash refunds.

Southwest doesn't charge fees to cancel flights. You must be talking about another airline.

Are you maybe referring to a travel agency's fee?
