Hi, a family emergency has arrised and I can't confirm when I can fly out. The next most probable date is 2-3 weeks from this Sunday.
My tickets were bought through Orbitz for Turkish Airlines. I can get a refund but lose $500 or change the date for a $264 change fee not including fare difference.
Just to get an estimate of prices for a date changed forward, 3 weeks from this sunday, costs $632 per ticket, which was ridiculous do to them not having the "same class" but when I search the google flight matrix there is a much cheaper flight option.
So my questions are:
-Keep the tickets open? This would result in fare difference and a change fee. So far most expensive route.
-Get a refund, lose about $500. I would then need to rebook another flight but I won't be sure when I can book a flight and also I would be booking within 3 weeks so everything will be expensive already as compared to buying my original tickets back in June.
