I have October, December 2021 and March 2022. Patiently waiting.
I killed my Disney bookings rather than pay the balances (no flights). I was going to pay and hang on until the last, but between Afghanistan, Ida and still rising US (and UK) infections I gave up hope.Anybody had any news on their October trips yet?
I am due to fly on 13 December. I think that if the industry gets any indication that the borders will open, the airlines will push back the cancellation dates. Keep hoping!I'm due to travel on 19th December. The longer this goes on, I'm getting worried that I'll be cancelled around mid Nov and then they will announce the borders are opening early December or something! The way flight prices are, I doubt we'll be able to afford to re book last minute.
I will be a bit surprised if there is anything good for us in there, because it's hard to see how opening borders more would fit with:if there is nothing in todays announcement about the travel ban being lifted
We shall see ...a six-pronged strategy intended to fight the spread of the highly contagious coronavirus Delta variant
its not "just" The UK , the travel ban affects the 26 EU countries, as well as China, Brazil, India, South Africa and Iran. And its not just about UK people wanting to go to Walt Disney World in Florida.I really don't think travel will come under the economic recovery. Domestic travel has been booming from what I've read, and I'm not sure that us Brits not being allowed in is really hurting them.
Because "BadPinkTink"?Not sure why you gave my post an angry reaction Tink?!
Most of those staff would have been got rid of anyway, because that's how it happens in the US, and now they have to rehire them, or hire fresh.The huge reduction of European airlines flying into US airports means huge unemployment at the US airports for all the Americans who were employed by the airports and airlines.
I know , I'm starting to feel the same way. My cut off point is the end of September, I'm trying to get my head around giving up on 2021.I really dont see us being allowed back in this year now.
Even if one side gives the thumbs up the chances of the other are slim considering the numbers and the expected winter boom.
I console myself with allowing the genie to do its worst and be picked apart by vloggers until i have a really good plan on how to navigate it. I also allows me to look at alternative stays for the break. Its gutting i know having lost last years trip but maybe it gives tron chance to open before we are allowed back in.
