SQ ticket refund due to pregnancy?

Hey guys, was wondering if any of you have had experience on requesting for a refund from SQ for non-cancellation tickets in the event of pregnancy (say, during the first trimester)?

I called SQ hotline on the above question and was told to submit the doctors' memo to state that my wife should not travel due to her pregnancy, andthey will "try their best" to give us the full refund on either grounds of compassionate or medical condition....

Has anyone of y'all had similar experience, tried and succeeded?

Many thanks in advance!

Most airlines have the right to reject passengers who are pregnant even if the gynec say "safe to fly"

Usually, the rule of thumb is 30 or 32 weeks totally cannot board.

Otherwise, must always have a physical or hardcopy letter from Gynec stating the current condition of the mom and the foetus.
The letter should be no more than 1 week ago.

After showing the letter at the check in counter, it's up to the sole discretion of the airline and ground staffs.

If rejected, its up to the company to decide what to do. Refund or credit etc

Before 28 weeks is definitely okay to travel, Guess you have been ask to show clause why you cannot travel by the gynae. We just did a travel from 24 weeks to 27 weeks with our two boys at the same time.

You probably need gynae letter certifying you unsafe to fly. But i don't know how easy that is to get cos medical advice nowadays is more like, you are mostly totally safe to fly in first 2 trimesters.

Will they ever compensate you? Non cancellation ticket. If you can't travel, the ticket is forfeited? Unless if you have a travel insurance
