Consumer rights with a cancellation

Jump to last reply

Hi, everyone, I hope I'm wrong about this, but if I'm right, it's definitely something to keep in mind.

My son has a ticket on Mexicana airlines for Guadalajara, leaving O'Hare tonight a bit after midnight. Well, that's not going to happen, the flight has been cancelled. He called the airline to see about rebooking, and here is the choice he was given. Get a voucher for the total amount of the original ticket (not cheap at $517), OR pay $178 extra to be re-booked tomorrow night.

My first reaction was -- they can't do that -- but the research I've been able to do so far suggests that oh yes they can. Does anyone have any more information that would confirm or refute that?

Seems crazy. I have had many flights cancelled in my decades of air travel and have never had to pay extra for the re-booking, nor have any of the people I've been asking this morning. But this is apparently Mexicana's policy.

I'd appreciate any insight, thanks, Laurie
