COVID-19 May Not Get You A Refund If Your Private Jet Flight Cancels
Aviation Partner Jonathan Epstein was cited in a Private Jet Card Comparisons article discussing COVID-19-related cancellations when chartering private jets. The article offers ways to reduce risk of cancellation trouble focusing particularly on the importance of working with a good broker. Brokers know which operators are more flexible both contractually and when something goes amiss. They also know the operators who are the most dependable.
Mr. Epstein said that even if the contract is seemingly against you, you can still argue to get a refund, particularly if the operator can’t make a case that they suffered a loss because you canceled. He said courts are typically wary of giving one party a windfall, particularly if you were simply accepting a boilerplate agreement.
