Refund on nonrefundable ticket?

So I did something monumentally stupid, and bought some US Airways tickets to London for me and my family back in January, for around $1000. Now, a couple of weeks before travel (July 1-12), I've found some much cheaper fares on United. Is there any way to get a refund for these non-refundable fares, or am I just SOL?

It sounds like you are pretty much out of luck as far as getting a refund. If you find a lower fare on the same airline, you could request a refund. In this case, you'll have to travel on your existing tickets.

Unused tickets are generally valid for a year plus a $150 change fee for International tickets. If the difference in fare is that substantial, you could buy the cheaper UA tickets and hang onto the US tickets for reissue in the next year.

That said, in this particular case, I'm not sure if I can recommend that plan considering US's situation.
