Flight changes... please help!!

I have booked my honeymoon to Mauritius in May 2009 and am flying with Air France, but after the tickets were issued my fiance was told by his employer that he MUST be back in work 3 days before we are due back. Air France will only change our departure flight by cancelling both flights and re-booking which will cost an extra £1,300. Anyone got any other ideas... If I book a one way ticket from Mauritius, without cancelling the return flight will we get penalised by Air France, and could this make it cheaper?

Any ideas will really help!!!!! Thanks

It seems to me you booked a non refundable and non changeable ticket with Air France. Not particularly wise considering it's your honeymoon. That's probably why they are telling you they would have to cancel your original airfare and re-book a whole new one.

So the best you can do is to stick to your outbound flights and try to find an earlier flight that won't cost a fortune. Good luck with that. And rest assure Air France will not be chasing you for not taking their return flight. It's ok not to turn up for your flight, there are no penalties for that. It happens xxxxxxxxxxxx number of times every day.
