probably Bc of people like me who book multiple refundable tickets for the same trip and cancel the ones I don't use literally at the last second lol

Why do you book multiple refundable? So you can just go at your leisure? Isn't that super pricey?

It's policy to do refundable whenever possible, so given that, people will book multiple tix in case there's any delays or whatever. Then just cancel the spares with no penalty

Hahahaha wowwwwww
