    Yes we get a full refund back into our account within 5 days which is good but we are so gutted. As soon as these reports were released all flights were cancelled.

    Newlyweds Dawn and Iain Askham are being treated for the virus in hospital after returning from the coastal resort of Cancun.

    The couple, from Polmont, near Falkirk, fell ill at the weekend, days after flying home.

    Scottish Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon said seven of 22 people, including workmates, who had been in close contact with the couple were also showing "mild symptoms".

    Ha ha we would love to lol. Man who I work with is flying to Florida on Saturday so his girlfriend phoned the airline today to basically shut everyone up and say that everything was ok and the response she got was - check with us on Friday...

    it just gets out of control, we would still go to Cancun in a heartbeat

    us2933,
    When you stated that all flights out of ther U have been cancelled do you mean the UK government told the airlines to shutdown all flight to and back from Mexico? Or was it the airlines taking it upon themselves to cancel the flights?

    The UK Govt recommended against non essential travel to Mexico, but the charter airlines took it upon themselves to interpret that the way they have and shut down all flights. The Govt didnt stop the flights.

    No doubt scared of being sued by someone.

    But they still had to fly the planes across empty to pick those up that were due to return home.

    this is off the WHO website updated today 16:00gmt

    "WHO advises no restriction of regular travel or closure of borders. It is considered prudent for people who are ill to delay international travel and for people developing symptoms following international travel to seek medical attention, in line with guidance from national authorities."

    sounds like the party is still on baby :lotsofmichaelf:

    Good grief....I wish I would quit getting calls from everyone I know telling me to stay home.

    I can get the flu here just as easy as there!! Got a couple questionables from a couple of the girls. Told them as long as the plane was flying I was going .. let the party begin!

    of course have to rethink my trip to Coco Bongo's...but can party at the resort
