With thousands of flights being cancelled everyday due to the COVID-19 pandemic, airlines are being forced to refund passengers for their tickets. With so many refund requests, the time it’s taking for airlines to issue these refunds have increased and are now taking several weeks depending on the carrier.
If you’ve requested a refund for your Delta Air Lines cancelled flight either online or over the phone you should be given a refund request number, which you’ll want to hang onto, as this will be needed when checking the status of your refund online.
How to Check a Delta Ticket Refund Status:
- Head over to the Check Refund Status page
- Complete the information which includes first and last name, ticket number, and refund request number
- Click continue and you’ll then see the refund request pop up and it should include the amount and the status
If your status shows pending this means Delta hasn’t issued the refund yet, so you’ll want to keep checking back. They’ve been advising they’re issuing refunds within 21 business days, which is essentially 30 days taking in to account weekends.
Once the refund is issued, it will likely take another few days for the statement to appear on your credit card. If you still have any questions you can contact the Delta Refund department by phone at 1-800-847-0578 Monday through Friday 8am – 7pm ET.
