Hey Johnny Jet-
Was checking out LAX today, there is Etihad Airways (EY) according to flight aware.com for airline codes
Thanks! Love Etihad!
With issues going on in Greece, is NOW a GOOD time to try to find a deal for Summer 2016 or do you think it is wise to stay away from Greece trips due to possible issues at hotels, etc?
Thr Elbe and Danube rivers are at record low levels this year. Viking has canceled alot of cruises in July. Can you investigate this and report back. Thanks
I did not know. I will find out
Viking is quick with their replies:
“Not true – this is not a record low situation and Viking has not cancelled a lot of cruises – but yes, there is low water on the Elbe and Danube (it’s a temperate climate – high and low water can happen during the season). The good thing about Viking’s Longships is that they are nearly identical and sail in opposite directions of the same itinerary – so if a certain portion of the river is not passable because of the water level, Viking does a “ship swap,” and all guests are moved onto their same stateroom on the sister ship to continue their journey with minimal disruption. Other cruise lines with a smaller fleet might need to cancel the whole cruise.
In fact…Aaron Saunders is onboard right now on the Danube, and he wrote about the ship swap here: http://www.fromthedeckchair.com/2015/07/22/viking-vidar-grand-european-tour-day-8/
There’s an update on the handful of current sailings that have been modified or cancelled here: http://www.vikingrivercruises.com/my-trip/about-my-cruise/current-sailings.html.
