I came to Taiwan to study Mandarin with the intention of only staying 6 months. I’ve been here 4 months and have decided to stay a full year to study. I’ve also signed a one year teaching contract to support myself.
I have a flexible return ticket that will expire in one year. It’s form Kaohsiung to Toronto with China Air (KHH to LA) and American from (LA to TO). I paid $1500 CND and feel like i’m wasting a good return ticket since it will expire before my contract is up (by about 4 months).
I’ve spoken to my travel agent and she doesn’t seem to know too much about refunds or if there is an option of extending. She basically gave me the general ‘no’ without even asking for my flight info. I’m guessing that I have no option but to let it expire.
I was hoping that there might be someone out there that has flown with China Air and/or American and know of something I can do. It’s my last tempt to satisfy that little voice in my head that tells me not to waste.
