I recently cancelled a flight on Emirates Airlines which was booked at a reduced restricted fare in first class. The cancellation fee was $800.00. Days later, I determined that first class was sold out suggesting that the space was re-sold. I understand that change and cancellation fees are listed in their “Conditions of Carriage” and I also acknowledge accepting them when purchasing the ticket. However, I believe these fees to be unconscionable. Have such fees ever been legally challenged through the courts? Airlines, hotels as well as cruise lines have similar punitive fees for changing or cancelling a reservation. If the hotel, cruise ship or airline re-sells the space they often double the revenue at the customers’ expense and at no expense to themselves. Although, I am not a lawyer, doesn’t this constitute “unjust enrichment” and wouldn’t courts frown on such inequity?
