    If you were confirmed and ticketed and then cancelled, file a complaint with DOT. I filed mine and they are more likely to force VA to compensate or give back the ticket if there are more people who do it. Make sure to attach the itinerary that it was confirmed and your e-ticket and then the email they sent (3 attachements). They are saying cancelling 9 days later is against DOT rules so join in people!
