      I haven't heard back from our travel agent yet...will let you know.

      If you are on US Airlines by chance they are offering refunds - we are all booked on Alaska so I hope they follow suit.

      My FI keeps telling me that everything will look very different in a week and to not panic and just see what happens - but since guests will be asking I figure I at least have to have a plan B in place...just trying to figure out what that would be.

      This is pretty much my worst nightmare come to life

      US Airways customers with booked flights to Mexico can opt to change their tickets free of charge due to the influenza outbreak in Mexico.
      bAccording to the US Airways Web site, US Airways "will waive the standard change fee, advance reservation and ticketing requirements for customers with travel to, from or through Mexico City" for travel through April 30.
      Mexico travelers can change their entire itinerary up to seven days before or after the scheduled origination date, or choose a credit valued at the full cost of your Mexico airline ticket that can be used toward the purchase of another US Airways flight within seven days of the scheduled origination date.
      US Airways does post a disclaimer on their site that says some airline tickets may not be eligible for all or a part of this refund. If you purchased your Mexico airline ticket through a third-party site or discount travel Web site, you should call US Air to determine your options for refunding or changing your Mexico travel plans

        Blkatz, I am so sorry. I am crying right there with you. A year of planning -- and then this happens. It isn't fair.

          It might have made its way to Scotland

          2 people have been admitted to a hospital 20min drive from where i stay, after returning from Mexico and having flu-like symptoms! They had been in contact with around 19-20 people and they have all been contacted...how scary?

          I really feel for all you girls who are flying out in the next few days/week. I would be a wreck..stay strong ladies, and try not and let worrying take over your special day. :)

              Hi everyone not to cause a panic but a flu vaccination will not help much due to the variant of this viral strain in protecting you from transmission. With WHO and the CDC getting involved this the media creates hysteria over a normal viral infestation that occurs every year within the swine population, yet here in america our pig handlers maintain higher levels of sanitary conditions thus we do not see this interspecies cross over of the virus... hence mexico is not the most sanitary country (3rd world in most places) creating a factory and mechanism of which this virus can travel much easily than it would in the states.
              Like the avian flu this will pass but until then it is going to be rough.
