alarm for people fying to europe !
« on: May 09, 2010, 05:27:07 AM »
They cancelled southern europe airports, and now places like paris and brussels are starting to close down too.
Hopefully the trend doesn't last, o/w fra, muc, ams, zrh will do the same today or tomorrow.

 well yesterdays CO TLV flights still flew the 84 left a 1/2 hr late and got in over 2 hrs late, while the 90 at night got in alittle over an hr late

 So at least I shouldnt have a prob on Weds, Dan start planning some alternatives as last time it lasted 5 days, amybe LOT is still flying and work your way elsewhere from WAW via train or car

No, as soon as you know that something is cancelled you speak to the airline to be rerouted.
Make sure you give your mileage card. You might very possibly get mileage for the changed flights, as the employees don't bother to rebook you on mileage classes.

Yup, every time I've been rerouted on a mileage ticket I've gotten Y/J/F class miles.

 the only problem is Dan has 2 separate tkts and if it ends up like the other week, once your flight is KOed you only get SBY, so since the Dans are flying on Tues everyone from yesterday,today and tommorrow will be ahead of them, then theres YomTov to deal with. thats why I suggested that he start thinking about alternative plans and places to go.

Mr Dans ticket europe TLV, can be cancelled up to 24 hrs to departure.

Normally speaking the volcano cancellations shoudnt be as bad as last time, as it costed 20B euro.
This time they are much more careful before just canceling days on end, without too much cheshboning

 understood, but alot of flights Over The Pond were CXed yesterday and alot already today, all those people will be reconfirmed before Dan will be if his flight is CXed on Tues. He has nothing to worry about if his flight isnt CXed but alot to worry about if it is

In some circumstances, the Andaz falls below Grand Hyatt IMO. Its more a matter of lifestyle  than rungs on a ladder
