Cancelled return flight

Cancelled return flight

Hi all

I've booked flights SNN to NOV with United in Oct with a stopover in EWK

I've just found out that United have discontinued the EWK to SNN route so my return journey is no longer possible.

I'm waiting for my TA to contact me with an alternative flight but nothing will be as suitable as my original flight. I will now need to pay for 2 rooms in a hotel the night before our flight plus car parking for 2 cars, we are a few minutes away from SNN so wouldn't have had to pay either.

Any advice?

United codeshares onto Aer Lingus for connections to Shannon from London Heathrow. I would expect that you can be rebooked on EWR-LHR (United) and LHR-SNN (Aer Lingus).

But you'll have to work this with the third party you booked with.

Btw, what do you mean by NOV? I'm sure you don't mean Huambo Angola which is what Flightstats is bringing up as the IATA code.

Sorry, autocorrect haha should be MCO

I really don't want to do 2 stopovers with kids, would prefer the DUB to MCO route via EWK

Although Aer Lingus do a direct flight from DUB, do you think they'd change us to that?

<< DUB to MCO route via EWK>>

Assume you also mean EWR (Newark) and not EWK (Newton, Kansas.

Booked for Oct 20th to Nov 3rd. Apparently Newark to Shannon isn't flying after Oct 28th

When are your flights (dates please, allows checking schedules)?

United's and Aer Lingus codeshares only apply to connections, not the transatlantic flights. So you can ask (very nicely) about switching to the EI transatlantic DUB-MCO but you'd be very lucky to get it.

Did you check Delta? They offer flights from SNN to JFK.

"Booked for Oct 20th to Nov 3rd. Apparently Newark to Shannon isn't flying after Oct 28th"

=========

That's far enough in advance to cancel for a full refund and start again.

Take a look at Aer Lingus from SNN via BOS. They code share with JetBlue for east coast connections. So you could get SNN-BOS-MCO.

All the US carriers have gone seasonal to SNN, and United has the longest season (shortest blackout).

To be fair, they cancelled the flights last year as well.

From which source did you learn that your flight on the 3rd Nov. is affected?

Maybe my information is not updated but I still see flights till and including the 3rd Nov. And then only from the 4th there are no more flights.
