My flight was canceled, and I don’t know when I’ll be able to go home. I’m still confused about what happens next.
I called the airline and was told that all flights were canceled and I didn’t have a flight for one week, so I waited. However, they did allow me to cancel at a later date, which I do.
But I didn’t want to leave my family. So I wrote a letter to them explaining that I needed to be home with my children before the weekend, and if they can’t let me know in advance, I will be gone. I mentioned that I was on vacation with my family and that I would be gone for a week.
I asked about getting a flight compensation. They said that the price of the ticket to London is included in the price of my last ticket, but that I would have to pay the difference between what I had to pay for my last ticket and what I actually paid.
They told me that I should have asked for a refund or have gotten the money from the airlines’ contingency fund to cover my tickets, but they can’t tell me how much is left because they don’t know what is left. I went home for the weekend and called the company that my tickets were bought through.
Shouldn’t I get paid for the ticket? What does this mean for the future? I can’t get a refund or a bonus for my year’s worth of work.
It doesn’t make sense, because I got nothing in return. If I am going to get compensated for this, I need to know exactly what is available, and I need to know about my rights. The only way to figure out what is going to happen to me is to speak to a lawyer about this issue.
I don’t know how long I’ll be gone. Hopefully it will be less than a week, but there is no guarantee that this situation will improve.
I am afraid that I will experience hearing about something like this in the future, especially since I am still ignorant about some things. For example, I hadn’t even heard of an airline’s contingency fund until now.
I read somewhere that it was some sort of insurance that came from their profits, and that it was a compensation plan to be used for those times when you couldn’t fly. I wonder if I will be covered if I ever have to travel like this again. How much do you think that it costs to fly from here to London each way?
I want to get this resolved, but I don’t want to take any risks. I want to know what is going to happen next, and I want to help those people who are in similar situations as me.
If I don’t want to experience failure, I need to find out more about what is going to happen next, and I need to speak to someone who knows what he or she is doing. Not a lawyer, but a qualified person who can help me understand what is going to happen to me next.
