    Hello,

    So I just got a call from my TA saying that Sunquest is not going to fly to Cabo until November. He said I have 2 options, 1-go to the same place just in November or 2-go somewhere else on the same dates. My wedding is in about 4 months & I can't imagine having to change it. If I move it to November a bunch of people can't come.

    Are they even allowed to do this?

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Natasha

      Yikes ..... that is strange?!?!?

      Would they refund you if you can find another operator that IS flying to Cabo? I imagine you are in Canada () because it's Sunquest. If you are in Ontario and they will refund you .... maybe you could get something out of Buffalo or Detroit?

      I'd be pissed!!! I hope you figure it all out!

        Ours is cancelled too....I was in serious shock even though Carly warned us in the Riu Santa Fe thread. We decided to cancel everything and have our wedding at home now. Not what we originally pictured, but it will be great regardless. Our date has been moved up to Aug 8, eek!

              I REALLY feel for you!! Our wedding was supposed to be May 28th, but due to the swine flu, everywhere was cancelling flights! We had to postpone to August.

              Prior to this, though, I had the entire trip booked with Sunquest, and we had undergone two big travel changes in a matter of a month. The first was a departure date from Monday to Saturday. The second was when Westjet parted ways with them(who they used for their planes), and Sunquest went with a charter airline. Which meant everyone would return to Calgary on a Sunday at 12:30am!! We would still have a 2 hour drive home! They really messed up travel plans for everyone, and was resulting in too much stress and additional days needed off from work. They really can't seem to nail down their flights.

              So, we cancelled the flight portion, and booked our flights directly with Westjet, which resulted in over a $1,000 savings for us!! Not to mention reduced hassle!
              I would definitely recomend checking into another flight option. You can keep the resort portion through Sunquest, as that is what we did. However, we just found out it would have been cheaper to go elsewhere for that too!!!!

              I wish you the best of luck, and I hope you can find an alternative so that you can relax and enjoy the rest of your planning! You should not have to be worrying about travel!!!!!!!
              Keep us posted! :)

                This happened to us too. I've been scrambling ever since trying to re-book our guests (via my TA). I'm NOT switching our wedding to November...my guests have already booked vacation time etc!

                  I looked at flights for my wedding in November for Westjet and they only fly to Cabo on certain dates.

                    Yeah Westjet wasn't an option for me either. They only have one flight scheduled per week right now and one of them was already sold out anyway. So frustrating!

                      We've booked a land only package for the rooms and went with West Jet for the flight. It got us in to Cabo earlier and was much cheaper than doing the Sunquest package. On top of that , the Sunquest package didn't leave from Edmonton which meant that we'd have to overnight it in Calgary. Not something I'd want all of my guests to do. Have your TA look into it more for you.
