What has happened is that my nearest local airport is Bournemouth airport and this is the airport which ‘Plane Sailing’ brings up when I log into my booking.
There is supposed to be a pull down menu to allow you to select other airports but none are offered and when I try to get a quote it simply tells me that there are no flights from BOU to MIA!
Dohh, YES PRINCESS - I know there are no flights to Miami from Bournemouth – I want to get a quote for flights from HEATHROW!!
The system will allow me to select different dates and arrive in the US earlier or leave later, but the pull down menu for my US airport, only offers me the option of MIA or FLL and doesn’t allow me to explore the option of flying in early and perhaps spending a few days in Orlando or Tampa, or if flying home on the day the cruise ends, using the normally cheaper option of flying out of PBI (West Palm Beach).
These however are minor annoyances compared with the fundamental problem that Plane Sailing / EZ Air will only search for flights from my local airport which has no flights to the US.
I’m just wondering if this is unique to my area or if folks living near East Midlands, Leeds/Bradford or Doncaster have similar problems with ‘Plane Sailing’?
Yup, I know I could phone Princess, but I don’t want to get into a flight booking discussion with them. I just want to compare prices.
In short, it is Neither ‘EZ’ nor ‘Pla(i)n(e) Sailing’
