Since traveling with my mid-aged mother in Aug in Laos, I plan to purchase air ticket Luang Prabang-Vientiane of 7:30am in someday rather than 10+ hrs bus. However, I heard some rumor that the Lao Airlines usually change its flights' schedule. Sometimes even suddenly cancel the flight several days before departure due to lack of passengers. Is that true and if such occasion likely to happen? If canceling or rescheduling do happen, how should I know the news? Is it easy to get the refund?
BTW, I also hear to book the ticket through local agencies while you are in Laos can be cheaper than booking online, is that true? If it is real, how should I find the agencies and how long I need to contact them in advance? Thx~
