8:38 am
found out i was pregnant in june. during a visit to her doctor ... jessica mentioned the upcoming trip. he said it's totally up to you and your family but i recommend you not doing it. her doctor raised concerns about zika -- a mosquito-borne virus that's been linked to birth defects in several countries. local transmission of the virus ... has been reported in florida. a vacation is just not worth that. i'm not sure anything is worth that. jessica's family was supposed to about 240 miles away from the active zika transmission zone. still too close for comfort for jessica's family. i got all of the money back for everything except from the airlines. in late july ... this was the original fax we sent. she asked american airlines for a refund of the tickets ... worth about 500 dollars ... and sent them a note from her doctor. this is to certify that jessica schneider is unable to fly. but getting a refund from the airlines ... wasn't easy.
8:39 am
three or four different times. contact 6 reached out to several airlines. american airlines ... frontier and delta ... all handle zika related refunds on a case-by-case basis. it is difficult to just have a policy and reimburse everyone who just doesnt want to go. flora fuller at bayside travel ... says airlines will generally offer alternate destinations ... travel dates ... or vouchers. but getting any of those things ... could depend on the date of cancellation ... directly into a zika transmission zone. normally fuller would recommended travelers insurance ... but that may not work in this case. most travelers insurance do not cover zika. eventually american airlines offered jessica vouchers for her tickets ... but they were only good for one year ... and were not transferable. me being due in february, we're not gonna go anywhere. out of options ... she turned to contact 6. i was getting absolutely no where until i contacted you guys. we reached out to the airlines ... and soon after... jessica
8:40 am
headquarters. we apologize, this shouldn't have been an issue. we're sending an email with your vouchers you can use them however you like. these vouchers must be used within a year ... but they are transferable to friends or family ... which is what schneider wanted. now she can finally put this all behind her ... their legs are so little and that's good ... because right now... she has more this is my absolutely favorite one. american airlines declined an interview for this story. overall ... our impression from a lot of the airlines is there's no clear policy on zika travel ... and you just have to call customer service to talk it over. and you may be charged a fee to change your flight.
