Had a great holiday in Macronissos last week. When I booked the holiday, I paid a surcharge for a daytime flight as opposed to the very late evening and even earlier morning return flights quoted in the original price. Shortly before the holiday, this flight was cancelled and I was given the original flights that were quoted on the internet and told that I was not entitled to a refund despite the fact that the alternative flights I paid for were cancelled by Olympic.
Has anyone else suffered from this? Could this be considered as shady practice? After all, if 100 people paid a £38 surcharge for a non existent flight, then that's a lot of money made out of it. Did the alternative flight exist in the first place?
