From the Wideroe website go to CheckMyTrip. Click the "view details" button underneath one of the flights. The first line is the US confirmation number - use that on the US Airwats website.

Ok then there is no point in paying attention to these type of deals. Some they keep some they cancel. You never know till something happens. Did you book it originally, did you book the El Al glitch? Did you book the delta glitch? The thing about these happenings is to book, if it gets cancelled it gets cancelled. But if it gets honored you are good and nothing will happen.

You just have to play and hope for the best.

Thats a big NO NO. Fill out the DOT's form. Once you have a confirmed ticket and its ticketed they have to honor it, they are not allowed to cancel a ticket a make you buy a new one at a higher price.

Might not necessarily fall with Wideroe but with US Airways as they cancelled a ticketed confirmation. Any they are required to honor it according to DOT. So technically this can go back to US Airways, not even Wideroe

And Wideroe still tickets other airlines to the USA and if they potentially want to keep that they will need to honor DOT laws for flights that touches US soil.

I just spoke to the DOT to a gentleman named Douglas Davis. He said this is the first he is hearing of the cancellation issue but that anyone who recieved a confirmation can/should email them their confirmation that they recieved from Wideroe. I told him there were hundreds if not thousands of cancellations given and he seemed very upset and concerned. His email address is douglas.e.davis@dot.gov and the subject should read Wideroe/US Airways Cancellation

Shot him an email with my confirmation email attached.

Dear Sir/Madam

Unfortunately we cannot issue electronic tickets for the itinerary you have requested.
Electronic tickets can only be issued for the companies you will find on this list:
http://www.wideroe.no/en/eticketairlines

For companies that are not listed we must unfortunately decline the purchase in accordance with our terms of sale http://www.wideroe.no/en/conditions-of-sale

Please confirm that you have read and understood this e-mail so we can cancel your reservation.

Your credit card has not been charged.

Try chatting with them in Swedish, it's fun.
First they told me it was due to no ticketing agreement, so I showed her their website that says they do have one.
Then she said I must have booked a different airline, and I said I didn't.
Then she said it was due to a price mistake, so I told her that the cancellation email was a lie.

Either way, Swedish is a cool language to copy/paste from Google Translate. Very Viking'ish

Dear xxxxx

Thank you for your correspondence regarding the reservation you made with Wideroe for travel on US Airways.

We are investigating the circumstances you described. If you have evidence that your credit card was charged, please send us this information as soon as possible. Please note that an itinerary or "confirmation for reservation" is not evidence that your credit card was charged.

We will forward your complaint to the airline and will ask the company to respond directly to you. If you need to contact our analyst assigned to your case, you may leave a telephone message on our Aviation Consumer line at 202-366-2220. Please include your name and case number (see above). We will make every effort to reply to your message within one business day.

We have entered your complaint in our computerized industry monitoring system, and it will be counted among the number of complaints filed against this airline in our monthly Air Travel Consumer Report. This report allows consumers and air travel companies to compare the complaint records of individual airlines and tour operators. The data in this report also serve as a basis for rulemaking, legislation and research. Consumer information for air travelers, including the Air Travel Consumer Report and our pamphlet Fly-Rights, a Consumer's Guide to Air Travel, can be found on our website, www.dot.gov/airconsumer. Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

Dear,

The Department of Transportation Aviation Consumer Protection Division has forwarded your recent correspondence regarding your displeasure with your unprocessed ticket request through the Wideroe website on US Airways travelling to/from Tel Aviv. We appreciate the opportunity to reply to your concerns.

Please accept our sincere apologies. We understand you received a “booking reservation confirmation” from Wideroe. As this confirmation from Wideroe states, “Your trip is confirmed when your ticket has been issued”. Our records indicate your credit card was not billed and a ticket was never issued for your travel. Under these circumstances, we are unable to continue to process this reservation confirmation as requested.

US Airways is committed to honor any tickets that were actually purchased. If you can provide evidence that your credit card was charged by US Airways, please submit proof and we will investigate further. We accept faxes at 480-693-2300 or you may scan and attach a copy of the credit card statement in a reply to this email. If you prefer to mail the statement please send copies to:

US Airways
Attention Customer Relations Department
4000 E. Sky Harbor Blvd.
Phoenix, AZ 85034

We realize we are unable to accommodate your request to issue this ticket and for that we apologize. Although an explanation does not change the outcome, we would like to thank you for affording us the opportunity to explain our position.

Sincerely,
