airlines have already uploaded their may schedule with limited international flights, but still selling tickets of many routes that is not going to operate to collect cash. forcing travelers to buy multiple tickets hoping one of them works.
A: I can't answer hypothetical questions. When you have an actual case in which you suffered injury, damage, loss or harm, then provide all the particulars and we'll see if we can give you any guidance.
Gabriel A Watson agrees with this answer
I agree with Mr. Fazzi.
Before a lawsuit is "ripe" which essentially means, 'ready to be filed,' certain things (legally referred to as 'prima facie' elements) must take place. One of these necessary elements is 'damages' i.e. injury, loss, or harm.
In many legal actions, a plaintiff must also take some care to avoid harm and to mitigate damages. Although clever attorneys can often figure out how to get past this, it's generally a good idea to avoid knowingly doing something that will cause you harm.
