Flights?? Any been cancelled?
« on: August 31, 2019, 12:29:23 PM »
Hi, Looking forward to next visit to Kalkan but received e-mails from BA over the bank holiday weekend (about to enjoy a relaxing time) that our flight out had been cancelled because of the pilots strike.

Panic!   Quickly sorted by immediately booking a flight (TK) on the same day from Gatwick to Dalaman, via Istanbul, arriving Dalaman at much the same time of evening.   Will take much longer because of the change over in Istanbul but having used Turkish Airlines once before we know they are good.   It has cost much more than the BA flight which we booked last October.

Now we await a refund from BA who we hope will at least partly reimburse the additional money.

Worried a bit that the return flight seats with BA may have vanished as we wouldn't be going out with them as planned.   Apparently that is OK.  I managed to talk to a real person on the phone at BA.

Just wondering if anyone else has been affected by the BA strike.   We use BA because they have flights in both directions at times that suit us.

Or maybe you have had other flights with different airlines and the trouble of sorting something out.

If you get problems - don't give up!

They may expect you to do that and then they get away with it.

In the event of the worst (unlikely, given the publicity on another Cruz-led cock-up) - persevere...

We have just sent off a letter to BA asking for the difference between the cost of the flight they cancelled and the large extra amount we had to pay with Turkish Airlines.   Of course if we had booked with them almost a year ago (as we did with BA) I think there wouldn't have been much, if any difference in the price.

So we wait and see, but I don't think we will give up straight away if they say no!

Good thing is we do have our new flight out to Kalkan and with a decent airline.   We would probably use Turkish all the time if they flew direct to Dalaman.

We had one leg of our Turkish Airlines flights cancelled (Dlm to Ist) and they wanted to move us to a flight the previous night. This would have meant us having no where to stay overnight while waiting for our flight to Gatwick (hardly any hotels close enough to new airport). We couldn't cancel just the return legs but had to cancel the whole booking but no problem getting a refund. Fortunately have managed to get extra time off work and now flying with EJ out on the early flight so should be at Kalkan around 4pm and also slightly cheaper. DH does like Turkish Airlines though, also just wish they flew direct.
