What does it take for an airline to issue a notice for political unrest and credible terrorism threats about to materialize so their passengers can get re-routed? I am furious at an airline b/c my family is supposed to come back home via the Middle East. Given the recent State Department travel advisory about a credible terrorism threat possibly being materialized in the next few weeks, I called the airline to get re-routed. They seemed absolutely clueless about the situation and even asked me: "There's threat?" What kind of airline is this? I just noticed some airlines putting notices for HI
when the tropical storm came through couple days ago, wouldn't you think an airline would be better prepared than that? So now, I have either the choice of letting my family go through the Middle East or pay $300/ticket penalty + difference in fare to re-route them through Europe or Asia. Is there anything I can do, but wait?
