We thought we had it good (considering the situation)...we had great flight times and we were booked on AA in mid Dec. (which in my opinon was a safe bet). Our TA called to add mileage numbers yesterday and we found out our flights had been cancelled. In fact almost all non-stop flights from Chicago to Cancun have been cancelled or will be until further notice.
Now here's the situation, although AA is willing to give a refund back to us, the hotel is not. So now we have to find airfare elsewhere (prices are ridiculous) or take the penalty.
I'm all for helping the economy recover in Mexico, but this is ridiculous...the only people making out here are the "American" based airline companies that seem to keep screwing people! I'm a little bitter on this...but I wanted to know if anyone else is having the same problem and what they are doing about it?
