Yup x7

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.

But do the rules apply to them?

If the flight touches US Soil then yes. They are required to honor all US DOT Laws.

It's so good to hear that but how is Wideroe under the DOT's jurisdiction?
Why would Wideroe care what the DOT tells them?

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.

How can one go about publicizing nationally (radio, newspaper etc.) that US air refuses to honor their legal obligations?
Negative publicity can sometimes achieve wonders.

Twitter and facebook would be a good start. Make sure to tag them

anybody that feels that us airways has illegally refused to honor their tickets purchased on 4/22/14. Please publicize it immediately on social media (facebook, twitter...) and any other public media that they can.

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.

I made two tickets.  One I received a confirmation email and no cancellation but the rep assured me it's cancelled and the other I never even received a confirmation email.
