Up until 2 days ago, they did not do that for the routes we’re on. Lots of people been complaining. I contacted them and Chase Travel a few times and nothing without paying $350 each. I got an email 2 days ago saying that one flight was canceled and they pushed us to the next flight that is 4 hours later. The follow day another flight was canceled adding another 9 hours to the next one. Chase contacted me asking to accept or declined. I chose the latter and they said I can rebook or get refund. Chose the latter again and haven’t heard back. Called and was on the phone with them for an hour but they couldn’t get through to Korean Air since everyone is calling them to cancel. Case was pushed to the offline team to handle. Should find out tomorrow or Tuesday. This situation has gotten so bad for South Korea in the last 2 weeks.

are your kids over 70? because thats who typically dies from the corona virus. its like the flu, just much more hyped up. so far, no kids have died. are you afraid of ebola, swine flu, bird flu?

My San Francisco clients have started to put policies in place preventing any off-sites or conferences and encouraging 100% work from home except for core functions. I've never seen them do that before.

Salesforce and Twitter banned all non-essential domestic travel. Accenture banned all non-essential international travel.

Can't wait to go and have the whole ship to ourselves lol.

Norwegian just informed us that we can reschedule for any date over the next 2 years so we may take that option.

Celebrity gave us the same option. Annoying they told me last Thursday that I could cancel FULL refund if I did it by March 10th. I called on Saturday and they had already taken away that option. Another concern we have of the many is that if we do go what is stopping the various port cities from denying our entry. This will most likely be our 1st and last cruise. If I had booked our normal travel situation where I drive all over a country I could have just cancelled all my reservations. In this case we are basically screwed.

They just locked down all of Italy no one is getting in or out now. Everyone is told to stay home. I doubt any cruises are going there now.

Just checked prices today to one of my favorite places in France and tickets are about 30% off for September-October, roughly $1000 in savings. What do u think? Not a good idea to book with this virus yet?

How far out are the savings now? I'd book for next year if the prices are similar, and make sure that it is refundable just in case.....

I wouldn't book. Europe is going to be fucked for the rest of this year. We thought about rescheduling our cancelled trip to Spain this fall. Not gonna do it.

Hopefully things will be back to normal next year.

Still looking forward to traveling... at some point.

Can probably book next year too. Not sure if we can plan anything that far out with a kid. Was hoping to take a vacation this September....

Good luck, although it is advisable to avoid travel
