If you miss any flight to your destination, the first thing you would want to do is to establish the class of your ticket. The flight tickets come in different classes hence the terms and conditions that governs them. In many cases, the airlines have fare classes like Promo, Regular, Semi-flexy, Flexy, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Comfort, Semi-comfort, etc.

After establishing the type of class of the ticket, establish also if it’s refundable or changeable. Some of the above listed ticket classes are non-refundable, and non-changeable whilst others are. You’ll know your status after confirming this.

Refund is when your money paid for the ticket is given back to you in full or part whilst reschedule is when you’re move to the next available flight for free or by bearing the applicable charges.

In conclusion, whenever you miss your flight, do not panic and say that’s all but you have options to choose from. Again, because of unforeseen circumstances, do not strictly go for a promo or restricted tickets unless you are very sure.
