    I am so sorry to hear about those of you who have had your weddings canceled!! I hope you guys are able to figure out a plan B. You think they would try to find another option so that you could still have your wedding on or around the same day. I am praying that all of you still have the dream wedding you dreamed about :)

    Has anyone heard of any of the resorts in Cabo taking any special precautions or changing anything at all?


    Getting married on June 20,09 at the Sheraton Hacienda in Cabo del Sol, Mexico!!

To make matters worse the company I am travelling with has said absolutely NO REFUNDS, just issuing travel vouchers. If the airline doesnt come up with something I am goingto make it my life mission to ensure no one flies with them again.... so frustrated!
        Heidi - if the travel company insisted that you cancel and it was not your decision, they should give you a refund. In my opinion, keeping your money for a decision THEY made would be grounds for a lawsuit.....take them to court!

              Im so sorry to hear that Sunquest cancelled you weddings...I really dont understand how they are managing to do this. If you have all already paid them. Whats stopping them from giving everyone there tickets to fly?

              there have actually been a few brides that have problems with sunquest even before this. they tend to arbitrarily cancel flights at their discretion and can do so because they are charter flights.

                  I am so sorry that so many weddings are being cancelled and that so many people are experiencing high stress levels. Chins up ladies, somehow, somewhere, there will be a silver lining.

                  I am on the ground in Mexico. My husband and I live in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and can say this - there are many things that you can catch and be bitten by in Mexico, and that has not stopped travel to this country in the past because, for the most part, only a handfull of people get bitten every year or catch something. My life, and the life of my friends here, proceeds as normal albeit with a little more caution i.e. no one is kissing to greet each other, no one is shakes hands and we are using hand sanitizer. These are small and I believe temporary changes.

                  If you need someone from within Mexico to help you during this time - my husband and I can speak Spanish and we will try our best to assist you.

                  I just checked Alaska Airlines' site and the following was posted:

                  Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air continue to monitor the current conditions surrounding the outbreak of influenza in and around Mexico. The safety of our customers and employees is our highest priority. The following options are being provided if your travel is impacted by the outbreak.

                  If you're traveling to/from Mexico from April 27 through May 20, 2009, you're allowed to make the following changes:

                  Change fees and/or additonal fare collection will be waived if the rescheduled flights are booked in the original class of service to the same city pairs as originally ticketed. Rescheduled travel must commence on or before May 20, 2009.
                  If new travel commences after May 20, change fees will be waived, however, additional fare collection will apply if the fare has increased.
                  If you wish to keep your travel date, but change your destination, you won't be charged a change fee, however you will be charged or credited a difference between the new and old fares.

                    So sorry for all of you that have had things cancelled. We are fingers-crossed for leaving on Monday. Hopefully this will all blow over and the US airlines won't cancel.

                    Here's another good video from Congressman Ron Paul.
