Subject: Dutch Caribbean Airlines

As a follow-on to the discussion on insurance & bankrupt airlines, here's a tidbit for you.

Dutch Caribbean Airlines completely ceased operations earlier this month. Any passengers holding partly-used tickets were accommodated on other airlines, with or without a fee, &/or purchase of a new ticket. These policies vary from airline to airline, country to country, in international situations. The website for DCA is shut down.

Tickets for unused future DCA reservations have no value, but a traveler can dispute a charge for any ticket paid for with a credit card if the charge is less than 60 days old.

Some insurance will cover reimbursement for bankrupt airlines' tickets.

BTW, Bonaire Excel & American Eagle are likely to pick up the routes. DCA's routes included Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, St. Maarten, Saba and St. Eustatius, as well as service between Curacao and Amsterdam.
