We’ll be notifying customers directly of these changes today and offering alternative flights to complete your journey.  Alternatively, if you elect not to travel, you will be entitled to a full refund for your trip.   We’re sorry for the inconvenience that we know this will cause, but can only ask for customers’ understanding that the situation is entirely beyond our control.
