My fiance and I were? (are) excited about our upcoming wedding at Reethi Rah and honeymoon leaving in less than 9 days. However, not to the resort's doing, but just this past Friday we received noti fication from United Arab Emirates that our flight leaving the atoll from Male to Dubai
is cancelled. This is the only airlines that serve the island. The
only alternative we have is to either leave the day before we had planned (therefore missing out on a night and 1/2 day the next day that we have PREPAID for and sitting at the Dubai airport for 6-8 hours) or extend for another expensive night and add up cost for changing all of our connecting flights. FYI... This flight was booked weeks ago.
Has anyone had this experience with the airlines and how was it handled? We have called Reethi Rah and they were helpful in a sense that they were willing to let us add the additional night stay (of course now we are over our budget).
Just beware beforehand when considering your travel plans with this airlines. We are at a quandry on how to proceed.
Any other's out there had this experience or a similar one and how did you handle?
