I was supposed to be flying to the USA next week for a multi-city trip. Due to the amount of flights required it was much cheaper to book through a travel agent (Kiwi.com) rather than with the airlines direct as I normally with.
Obviously my plans are now cancelled, and so are my UK return flights (London to JFK and Miami to London), however my domestic US flights are not cancelled (NYC to Vegas, Vegas to Miami).
In terms of options available to me, Kiwi offer an instant refund (of around 5% of the overall spend lol), or the option to leave them to it for 3 months and see what they come back with. I think if I accept either of those options I lose all of my rights.
The dilemma is made trickier still because my UK leg flights are with Norwegian Airlines (who may go to the wall this week). For reference, my US flights are with Frontier.
Has anybody been in a similar situation to this? I am not insured for this trip (I have an annual travel insurance thing which is just Europe only and was going to get US cover about now) and I booked it using a debit card, so I'm not sure I'm particularly well covered.
They’ve backed their models, forecasts and plans, and if you don’t follow all the contingencies put in place then why bother making them in the first place?
On the other hand though, it does feel a bit uncomfortable to be the only country in the world who is following this sort of advice and it’s not fun to be part of a real-world run through of a simulation.
Baffling to me that large (specifically sporting) gatherings are planned to go ahead this weekend.
I’m currently stuck in Brussels (long story) and whilst it’s really windy and an occasionally wet here it isn’t too bad. I’ve checked the news back home and can only see extreme stuff about flooding, power cuts and the like - is the game v Wimbledon tomorrow in doubt at all?
Changed both of those games v Lincoln once moved into a deeper central midfield position.
I really think we will improve as a team if we can get him in that role permanently (rather than out wide or in a ten). I get the arguments around physicality and coasting through games, but I really think (as the second half last night shows) that we have plenty of players in this squad who can allow us to just play on the front foot and give him the time and space to make him really effective.
For us having a better player not involved for pretty much every starter in the side last night.
We really weren’t very good, but ultimately we’ve won another game, remain unbeaten and are surely only going to get stronger and stronger when players start coming back.
A better game at right back, a midfielder who could carry the ball and a flying winger and last night would have been a cake walk. We will soon have options in midfield and attack on the bench to make us truly change shape effectively during games, whilst last night proves sometimes just battering the door down works.
