My husband and I purchased a vacation with Friendly Planet for Egypt. The package included international flights, not domestic. We were flying out of JFK. Unfortunately, the morning that our domestic flight was scheduled, NorEaster hit and our flight from Phoenix to JFK was cancelled. We were unable to get to JFK in time for our international flight. I made this known to the travel agency over 12 hours before our flight was scheduled to leave to Egypt. The best option Friendly Planet could provide was getting us on the next flight out--- 3 days later. We would have missed almost half of our trip. So, the next best option was to book additional flights. We ended up purchasing new international, one-way flights from LAX to Egypt, at the total cost of $2300. I didn't purchase insurance, and I'm obviously willing to eat the extra cost that we had to incur by purchasing new tickets. However, I was upset with the fact that Friendly Planet/EgyptAir wouldn't give us a credit for the missed flight segment. We paid for those flights, even though they were part of a travel package. I feel as though I'm entitled to that money, and am willing to pay the change fees associated with that.
