    we've been here since 6:30, it is now 9:30!!! Our flight was supposed to leave at 10, but guess what?? It got cancelled!!!!!!

    So the airline wanted us to wait until tomorrow...... Ummmmm I don't think so!!! So after a few minutes of pregnancy hormones tantrum they moved us to another airline. We leave ( fingers crossed) at 11:40.

    Also, they don't have a flight back on the 17th, so I will be making johnie work extra time trying to get us one more night at akl.

    Talk about an interesting start!!!

    At the moment its toƱos turn to run after our tansmanian devil

    That's definitely not something you want to hear at the airport. I would have laughed them out of the room if they had said "tomorrow." Be safe!

    I imagine she's in the air since she's supposed to land at 4pm. I've updated DME and added another night to the AKL stay. I wonder what happened with the flights?

    That's so bad. Can an airline just cancel a flight whilst your at the airport. I hope she gets an extra night.
    Is Johnie not the best as our in-house TA.

    Could it have been because of the hi - jacked plane from Cancun which was diverted amd landed in Mexico City yesterday ? :unsure: Although that was yesterday . :unsure:
    So, happy she's in the air and that you got her the extra night at AKL . Hope the rest of her trip is truly magical .

    Oh dear God....I have just about had a heart attack. I called the resort to see of they had checked in. They have been searching for the names I've given them for 20 minutes. Thank God they found them!

    they are all checked in!! I didn't want to call their room since it is almost 10pm.
