AF to allow you to sell unwanted ticket.Back to Forum
Ever booked a discounted non-flexible ticket way in advance to find it’s no longer needed?
Air France (and Joon) have partnered with ‘Flexfly’ to enable passengers with unwanted tickets to sell them on to a third party. You get back 50% of the original fare paid, the other 50% goes on the discount to the second buyer and AF/Flexpay.
There have been a couple other unofficial reseller sites but I believe this is the first airline endorsed one.
It’s incredible how third party developers and technology is changing the way we travel – bidding for upgrades via third party sites, now selling our unwanted tickets.
Apologies I couldn’t find a link on the AF website in english:

So I accidently signed up for a site called Jack’s Flight Club.
To unleash its full discount potential you need to subscribe, so I’ve not really investigated further.
I’m assuming it might be an unofficial resell site that you’re talking about rferguson.25 Oct 2018
Makes sense. If someone can no longer fly and will get peanuts in refunds, why not allow someone else to fly and keep the buyer AND the airline happy ? Surprised it wasn’t around sooner to be fair. That said easyJet allow complete name changes for around £50.00..26 Oct 2018
