Be aware Oman Air scam you on the webBack to Forum
On the web Oman Air offer a wide variety of tickets on sale right now, even though all their flights are canceled. Once you paid you are notified that the flight is suspended but the money has been cashed already. You are than directed to a mail address of the refund service that say that you will be answered within 15 days.
After 15 days, when they neglect to mention that the answer will be an automated text which refuse any refund or credit, only change of date will be offered even though you might not need that route in the future.
Be aware, that at this time when airlines and web agencies are starved for cash they will offer you the moon only to pocket your cash.
Getting a refund will takes month if not refused flat out.

I have to ask why you are buying tickets if you know that all flights are cancelled.
Are the flights originating in EU, or to EU?19 May 2020
On the face of it this seems incorrect behaviour from Oman Air. However, like QE there will have to be a reckoning one day, when you have plane loads of pax all wanting to fly on tickets that have been paid for but the airline has spent the cash!
What equally disturbs me is the offer to rebook for free, provided the same fare is available!! Then to sweeten the blow of any increase a EUR 50 voucher is offered.
Some rum going ons if you ask me??19 May 2020
There probably will not be same tarif ticket available and we will have to add more money. My point though is that I will never need that route in the future, I want refund or credit.19 May 2020
I’m not taking you for an imbecile at all (you said it, not I) but there are many many websites masquerading as genuine airline/hotel/car company websites, banks, etc. I know some highly intelligent and cautious people who have been caught out in this way.
If you don’t believe me, and you probably won’t because you seem to have gone into combat mode, look at this which comes up if you search for SA AIRLINK or BOOK SA AIRLINK. THen tell me who you think you would be booking with and paying.

It’s not taking someone as an imbecile, it’s starting with basics and working up from there.19 May 2020
capetonianm, Thanks for your input but I used the right site and did not do a search as I used it many time befor.
For your info and beside this point most airline sites will transfer you to their flight orgin site, uk for ex GB fr for ex FR and so on. Sorry if I gave you the notion that I am in “gone into combat mode” but often in this chat room people tend to put forward the obvious as a reply which is not helpful. And you are right we could be easly be mislead on the net.

FaroFlayer. I did made a booking with Oman Air, when this one was canceled I made a booking with a travel agant for alternative flight different airline same route, which was cancel also. So I made a 3rd with yet another airline which was canceled also. Only thing is that the last 2 refunded me within a day, which is not the case with Oman air. Hope it is more clear to you now. Maybe I need to draw a picture.19 May 2020
