Hi, I am just wondering what if the flight cancelled the day before due to the weather condition, is it possible to have full refund? It is because I am planning to organise a hot air ballooning flight on the last day of my trip in Australia, it is impossible for me to reschedule the flight if it's cancelled as I am flying back to my home town afterwards. Thanks.
