I've just had an email from Ethiad who we are flying with (all the way) from Manchester to Australia in june. they have rescheduled/cancelled and rebooked our connecting flight in Abu Dhabi 24 hours after the original flight was due to depart.
This might seem trivial to the airline but its a bit of an issue for us in terms of accommodation in Abu Dhabi and a lost day in oz. Do we just have to accept it and the associated costs??
