A fellow journalist wrote me an email over the weekend about a couple he knows who were headed to Mozambique via London Heathrow but had their flight canceled because of the Iceland's volcano situation.
This couple made a new booking for two weeks from now, but it cost them an additional $1,500 on top of what they originally paid. Had they tried to go one week after the original departure, it would have cost them $4,500 more than what they originally paid when they booked their cheap fare months ago.
A lot of attention has been given to the amount of money airlines are losing, but what about the high price a lot of travelers are facing as they scurry to rebook flights, hotels, etc.?
Are you a traveler who's on the hook for thousands more thanks to the volcano? Share your story here...
