If an airline convinces you to cancel your flight during the coronavirus pandemic, can you still get a refund? That’s what Lon Allan is asking today.
In March, Allan was sitting at home, minding his own business when an email from United Airlines arrived.

Now Allan wants help retrieving the $8,631 he paid for the flight that United Airlines convinced him to cancel.
