Frequently Asked Questions
I booked a flight to Doha, but my schedule changed and I missed my flight?
The emails and e-tickets sent to you advise that you check-in at least 3 hours before Departure, moreover, the passengers must re-confirm their flight schedule at least 24-48 hours before departures. There are thousands of passengers travelling on a day and there are flights that are booked well in advance, sometimes daylight saving can cause change in departure or return flight times, and it is physically impossible for agents to check for schedule changes, therefore passengers are required to re-confirm their flights both for departure as well as return well in time. In such cases where tickets are non-changeable and non-refundable, you will have to purchase a new ticket as the existing ticket becomes un-usable due to no-show. However, for all changeable tickets, you can pay for the changes to next flight, these comprise of "no-show fees, re-issuance fees and fare difference".
