ash cloud cancellation
Posted 16 May 2010 - 11:15 AM
Some friends of ours were sat on the plane this morning going to mauritius when it got cancelled and the bride and groom in tears!
Has anybody here had any similar thing happened annd is it possible to have a back up plan of any kind?

At the moment its the north of the country thats in trouble.
However its literally just the wind changing.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can you imagine being sat on the runway and then the rug being pulled away!!!
Just to keep myself sane im going to try and not to think about it.
Can you get some clarification about the paperwork from the travel agent or local office
We have booked our wedding trip independently so i think we would find ourselves with no chance or rebooking AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I know worse things happen every day but............................................... ...
Chin up,happy thoughts xxxx

The actual wedding i guess can be re arranged but there are 18 of us going so its going to be a big problem,if any delay is only a day or so we might be ok-any longer annd its a cancellation i think!
Going to ring the travel agents tomorrow too but they will probably say just wait and see what happens.
A back up plan would be good but at this moment cannot think of one!

I thought the travel insurance was a good idea. I don't know about it covering act of God, but it usually takes in just about everything, such as if you missed your flight for most any reason. Most airlines offer it when you purchase your tickets.
Also, I know that this might be more money but according to where the ash is affecting, what about flying out from a different location. For instance, this weekend I know that Gatwick and Heathrow were closed down, what about flying out of Paris? I dont know if this helps. But I hope it does.
