3. Refund

3.1 You are entitled to a refund of the specific costs of your pre-purchased extra baggage, if:

3.3 If you are able to change your flight on the grounds of the fee conditions applicable to your ticket, then your pre-purchased extra baggage allowance will remain valid in combination with your amended ticket.
