I hope someone can advise me as to where I stand when a flight has been cancelled.
We are flying out on the 5th june ( 12 persons) from cardiff airport to larnaca.
My parents are flying out a week later from cardiff 12th june as was my son and his girlfriend.
Now I have had a letter saying my sons flight has been cancelled and the nearest airport they can depart from is Birmingham.
He and his girlfriend have never been abroad before and are only coming this year for my wedding at Dherynia town hall.
Is there anyway around this problem? Any info would be greatly apppreciated.
We have booked with First Choice
Son is booked with Olympic Holidays.
They said they can get him on a flight from birmingham to larnaca (but birmingham is a fair distance away) without the expense of transport which he does not have??
He has never been abroad alone before and is a little bit daunted about having to get to Birmingham.
If you choose to go from Birmingham International its a fairly easy airport to get too, by rail or car - although rail travel on a Sunday can be a bit iffy. Done it many a time from the South Wales area myself.
I will go to travel agents tomorrow and try and book him with someone else, and get in touch with Olympic Holidays and get a refund as the alternative they are offfering me is not acceptable to us,
thank you again for your help
Just to let you know ,I have been given a Full Refund and also have booked another Package Holiday for the same airport and flight time as the rest of the family.
Apparently Olympic Holidays have cancelled all their flights for this year.
Travel Agent said its due to a "falling out" with First Choice.
What a relief
Thanks for your help again.
