    I never understood why people cheaped out on ELTs. My plane didn’t even have one when I bought it! It cost only $700 to buy a new 406 ELT. Small price to pay for the peace of mind it brings, IMO.

    Exactly, I also don’t understand why some pilots cancel their flight plan prior to landing at a remote airstrip, so they don’t have to remember to make the call upon arrival.

    I really don't know why they don't mandate the return of the money. I received my money back from Delta easily and as the US and EU it's mandatory. When they cancel the service incompletely (ie Wabush) it's a pretty "dick" move to give only a credit. They are going to have to rebook on PAL id they want to fly and lots of people don't have the extra cash to have a credit and then book more tickets, especially in this economic crisis.They can always use the credit if they really want to but the flights are just a small cost of a "fun" trip. Going to see family in Wabush where you're staying with family is a very different financially than going on a lholiday.

    There's some day it's clear this forum forgets that the average median after tax income is approx. $61K and that 53% of the population loves paycheque to paycheque. 

    I’m not understanding 'average median'

    FWIW, I recently used this method and the CC (AMEX) refunded my money. So it does work, although I have no idea the overall success rate.

    And that is probably why AMEX especially the platinum goes beyond the regular CC because of their annual fee.

    Is there a safe airline right now? This is so widespread it's going to be hard to say who will survive. 
    The biggest concern is going to be whether governments are capable of saving airlines in distress. 

    No sure how the governments could save the airlines because there isn’t much in the line of tax payer's dollars coming from landing fees, business taxes, gst and so on.
