What airlines have a free cancellation policy?
During the pandemic, airlines have shifted the way you can modify or cancel an existing flight. As a general rule of thumb, getting a refund back in your original payment form is difficult for any airline.
Depending on the type of ticket you initially purchase, changing a flight or getting flight credit towards future travel is doable. American, Delta, Southwest, Alaska, and United do not have change fees for most tickets, and flight credit can be provided for most main fares or higher.
For example, the saver fare on Alaska Airlines is not eligible for refunds or changes 24-hours after booking. Similarly, United’s basic economy fares are ineligible for refunds after 24-hours of booking.
