Can I cancel a CB with non-refundable airfare?

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Aug 20, 2016 9:46 am

Long story short, got an offer from a place I'd go work at. Have a CB in another city on Monday morning and a flight tomorrow. I don't want to waste the firms time but the flights are non-refundable. What's the best situation here?

Okay I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't come off as bad or a dick move because the flights can't be refunded.

Can you really? I thought firms would make you pay the cancellation fee or something.

The firm is out the money either way. Why waste its time too?

How do you envision this happening logistically? Do you think they are going to send him an invoice?

They just eat it.
