    OMG!!!!!!!!!! I hope this gets sorted out for you quickly. A total nightmare at the moment but I agree, it will be a great travel tale with much laughter after some distance and many champagnes. :thumbsup2.

    Chin up luv.

    They haven't done anything to help, in fact their customer service in the terminal was appalling except for the poor girl who served me at the counter, all they need is a cattle prod.
    I'm going back to the terminal in the morning, new day, new outcome?
    Apparently also all airlines are pretty booked for the next 5 days at least, which is where the problem really lay, by putting us on standby they'd be creating a second standby list, they overbook this flight every night :furious:

    i'm just going to rock in the corner...

    Contact delta assist, and also your travel insurance provider, they should cover hotel and rebooking charges.

    Delta code share with virgin, so see if they can pop you on one of their flights.

    Keep all your receipts etc food, accom, transport, etc....

    Make sure you record names of all people you deal with, and also ask to speak to the supervisor, just go straight to the top.
    With delta, also ask if you could be voluntarily bumped for the next available flight, that will then cover food and accom until a seat is available, and will take you off standby.

    Thinking of you

    OMG!!!

    Let me get this straight, you booked MEL-lax- MCO return, then added MCO-NYC and NYC-LAX later?

    Were you able to get a room for the night?

    Crossing everything for you, you will be home soon!!

    Thanks everybody, I hardly slept last night, DH got on the phone to Delta this morning and sorted out a flight for us, Monday night, we used some leftover Delta credit and cash :furious: but I'll worry aboutb that when we get home, and nobody can explain why we weren't even told our ticket was cancelled.
    And in the whole checkin area last night only 1 person tried to help us, 1 out of about 15.
    So today when DH got off the phone we were debating what to do, where to go? The choice was San Diego or Palm Springs, deciding on PalmSprings we hired a car, Hotwired a hotel so off we go, we need to relax.

    When life gives you lemons, you just gotta make vodka spiked lemonade...

    Have a great weekend, enjoy your Extra holiday! Did you speak to your insurance company, what is their tale on it?

    I can't believe all of this has happened. I'm still confused about what went down but I'm so glad you've managed some "vodka spiked lemonade" :lmao:. Palm Springs sounds lovely. Enjoy this extra little gift of time you've been given. Safe travels.

    I'd like to know this also.

    Thank goodness you have sorted something out!, and hopefully a relaxing few days in Palms Springs will help you get over the stress and give you a nice finish to the trip. :hug:

    Hope you have extended your travel insurance? You really don't want to be uninsured while you're there.

    wow, glad you ended up with flights in the end. After a while it will be a fond memory of what happened on that trip. In the end you are safe and sound and can enjoy some more time in the US.

    At least it shows you what to expect with Delta.

    Thats exactly what i was thinking! I wont be flying them anytime soon.

    I am still totally shocked they are allowed to cancel an international ticket did they give you credit for the cancelled flight?

    Enjoy your extra 5 days at least you get to see somewhere else and i hope you have extended your travel insurance but i am wondering if they have helped you at all during this time?
