Jun 12th 2008 10:29PM SilverJet Ticket Holders Deserve Refunds
If the revived SilverJet is going to honor existing tickets then they should offer a refund to anyone who desires it.
Many of us have booked flights with other airlines since SilverJet said they were not flying anymore. SilverJet broke the contract between us by ceasing operations and telling us to get refunds through ATOL or our credit card companies.
Since I have re-booked a July flight, I don't want or need the SilverJet tickets. I will be stuck with two sets of tickets (eight altogether) for the same trip. This is just not right. How can an airline force us to buy competitors tickets and then remove all possibilities of getting our money back?
We deserve refunds. Either SilverJet should give all of us refunds or shouldn’t honor the old tickets at all. At least then we can claim relief through other channels.
