we will be doing something similar next year, and hope to be able to use Ez Air to fly into Prague for a week pre-cruise.

36 days until cruise and my EZAir reservation was finally ticketed and confirmed! So it takes about 9 business days after the 45 day period is over to get ticketed in this case. At least I don't have to call!

I booked a flight using EZ air for next Feb. So if I pay for my cruise and airfare in Oct; will Princess pay the airline or do they wait until the last minute to pay the airline? Thanks. I already have my seats on Delta for outbound and return flights

Assuming you have a flexible fare, Princess will pay the airline 45 days prior to sail date, although other posts have indicated it is sometimes a few days later.

Regardless, with the flexible fare you can make changes for whatever reason up to the 45 day mark.

Just a word of warning!
If you book with EZAir, you should regularly check your flights. 125 days out and my friend went to check her flights and found that they had been cancelled!!!! She was flying from San Diego > Atlanta > Barcelona and home from Ft. Lauderdale!
Over an hour and 1/2 on the phone with Princess and they got her flights back with an earlier departure from SD, but never told her why they were cancelled!!

Just want to be sure I understand you correctly. The flights were no longer available through Adair of the airlines cancelled them?

NO! The flight was still available from Atlanta to Barcelona (We are on that flight still). Not sure if after cancelling the first segment there were no longer seats or it was just cancelled altogether? So they were given an earlier flight from San Diego to ATL and put back on the flight to Barcelona. There was no reason given for the cancellation.

Worst yet is that they were not notifies of this! My friend just happened to check on it.

When you say keep checking, do you mean EZ AIR or the airline site?

The airline site. Actually, our flights are no longer available on the EZ Air site for the day of disembarkation as they don't meet the cruise line guidelines.

They did when I first booked them. Then Delta changed the departure time and it didn't meet the guidelines.

I had to call Princess because we had a fantastic fare (RT east coast to SYD, premium economy, $1,600) and if I had to rebook for that day, on another airline, the new fare would be double!

My husband and I agreed that if we could keep our fare, we were willing to spend another night in SYD. (Fare at that time for the next day was $2,700!) Princess made the switch, honoring our original booked fare. Worth it to spend another night in SYD compared to spending an add'l $3,200 on air.
