Well done to Thomson then.....

That's the way that Customers deserves to be treated.

These are the type of firms one must trust to book his holidays in the future.

But sure many others firms includes some Insurances showed in this Volcano Problem that they are just A Rip-Offs......

So we all holiday makers must learn from this disaster to many holiday makers.

Good Day

Sorry Bah thought my post was posted here lololol.

Anyway im posting it here too....

Great Bah

i am sure your Tread will get on getting comments for a long long time

As i said we can learn a lot from each other comments and advises.

What we realy need here is that we all will give the real facts and truths about airlines....Holiday Accomodation Booking Agencies and Travel Insurances...

Only this will helps to keeps encourage us to continue on planning our own holidays.....and naturaly we save lot of money by this .

Hope by time of my visit to Beni for the first time all get to normal.

Again my flights were booked online with Ryanair and again my hotel was booked also online with Travel Republic.....What i can say is that so far......(fingers crossed) i have never met with any problems with any of them.

Have a nice day

According to NATS:

'Overnight the CAA, in line with new guidance from the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) decided flights above the ash cloud will be permitted in the UK; between 1300-1900 this will enable aircraft movements above 20,000ft in UK airspace.'

Hi www46, see your having trouble contacting EasyJet. Try this website Getsatisfaction.com/easyjet this was the only way we ould get any help from them when our holiday went pearshaped at xmas because of the snow. They have EJ employees on the forum to help you, and they seem a lot better than the customer services dept. Hope this helps you to sort things out.

We should use this thread to aquire quality information thta we can not only learn from but use to excercise our choices in the future

Package operators: Who supported passanges and who did not?

Independent travelers:

Which Airline supported and which did not

Which hotel booking site supported and which did not?

Insurance companies

Which admitted liability and agreed payouts?

Who used the Actof God / Exceptional curcusmstances Get Out of Jail card?

We need to know as consumers and potential victims !
