Well, I've tried that before. I was booked to travel on Flybe when it was announced that the airport firefighters would go on strike that day.
I called them up, and after "What strike? They don't let us have internet here... Oh, let me call you back..." it was "Your class of ticket doesn't let you rebook, you'll need to cancel it, get a refund minus the cancellation fee, and buy a new ticket. Or show up on the day and we'll rebook you." A new ticket would have been double the price, mind you.
Eventually I persuaded them (actually, their supervisor's supervisor) to see the sense in having one less irate customer yelling at their gate agent and they did rebook me for nothing, but I can see why people would just give up, or not bother dealing with it in the first place. Especially since the strike was later called off...

For it is the number of a man; and its number is One hundred threescore and twelve.
