When I found out that our flight was canceled (we would’ve canceled if the airline didn’t), Avianca stated that the ticket would remain valid until we had a new travel date.

When an airline cancels a flight, I think it’s fair for us to expect a refund not the opportunity to pick a new future travel date. Continue reading Where Do We Stand With Getting A Refund From Avianca?

I recently wrote about a sweet deal, NYC- Amsterdam for $356 roundtrip.

While booking this deal with Norwegian Air, I had some concerns due to their strict baggage rules. The airline clearly states restrictions like the max size your bag can be and the allowed weight you can carry on for flights.
