Missed Flight Due to Covid Test Suggestions
As soon as I arrived to the counter they told me I needed a PCR test because I was connecting in Portugal, it's my fault I didn't think I needed it since I'm double vaccinated and going to Spain that does not require PCR if double vaccinated.
Guy at counter said I can take test at airport. By the time I got it, and got results and came back to the counter it was closed. I went through gates, and the plane had just closed the gates like 10-20 mins ago.
Now I'm stuck thinking what I should do. Ticket prices skyrocketed since the time I bought them, so I called the airline an hour ago and they want me to pay an extra $1100 per person to board, we are 2 people so that's a lot.
Any way I can deal with the airline to get a better deal on this? Hoping on a reschedule for free but that does not seem like it's going to happen. Is there any COVID related rule for this? I'm just thinking of just call it a loss and lose my vacation since I can't afford $2200 lol. Hope anybody have any suggestions.
