Anyone Else's flights to Mexico Getting Canceled?!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I wanted to see if anyone else is going through what we've been going through and rant! First, our trip from Mexico back to Portland on Mexicana airlines got canceled. We had to sit on the phone haggling with the airline for an hour. Then, the flights we got changed to, on American Airlines, got canceled! They said we can take an alternate flight that they pick or get a full refund and both options sucked. We were originally getting in to Cancun at 3:30 pm and the flight they wanted to change us to got in at 9:00 pm! That takes a whole chunk of a vacation day. We fought and fought and got them to give us the getting in at 9:00 pm flight for a day earlier but it was ugly.

 

This has happened to us and three other couples. Anyone else going through this or is it a Portland crisis??!! I feel so bad for our guests (and ourselves) and at this rate, I'm worried it will keep happening. I know we booked early but that was the whole idea in saving $$.

it happened to us in february. our connecting flight from mexico city to pv was cancelled. we wound up going the night before, which didn't change our flight price, but did require an extra night at the hotel.

unfortunately this is happening everywhere. i had to rebook 6 flights for some guests because they had a flight change that put them in so late they would miss their welcome dinner.

We are at the mercy of the airlines, and there isn't much we can do.

 

I usually work through a Travel Agency (instead of doing it myself with websites), and so far I've been really lucky.

we had some times change, but they were all better times. I was so scared of this happening, but luckily it didn't.

 

The best you can do is get a good TA & travel insurance.

 

I'm really sorry you are dealing with this. Canceled flights was my biggest fear for our wedding.

We had several flight time changes then mine and FI's flight got canceled altogether.

 

We are all still getting flight time changes. Just last week we got two.

 

Airlines are cancelling a lot of flights because of fuel prices.

I didn't think I was alone! We do have a TA but some of our friends didn't use her and I have been haggling for them (I can't help it, that's how I am when I feel responsible for people going on a trip and spending tons of $$). I can deal with time changes here and there but I still fear more cancellations in the future. I hope they are done!!!
