According to https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DPL/Reimbursement it seems
that he should follow the instructions under the SPI section, can I
forward that to him and ask him to follow up with the emails above if he
has further questions?

Very likely also Kyle.

I had a small stroke (of which I should recover from fully and feeling
mostly fine already) the Friday before and was at risk of having a
larger event immediately after, so I played it safe. Unfortunately I
couldn't wiggle out of my expenses, I usually take the cheapest flight
tickets that are non-refundable or changeable. I thought that a medical
reason might be even sufficient to request some kind of change but it
was basically a 'no'.
I won't lie, it would help me a lot if I could get re-reimbursed for
that but I didn't go to the sprint and because I was recovering I didn't
even participate remotely (which was an option), so I didn't expect any
kind of re-imbursement and have learned it might be better to pay a
little bit extra for a flexible ticket.

It did! And the video team says it went well, Wouter wrote some blog
entries about it:
