In early Feb. I booked flights, car rental and accommodations for a two-week solo trip April 28-May 14. All bookings can be easily cancelled, or refunded excluding the Aer Lingus flight.
They offer no refund, only waived change fees to rebook within a time limit! At this point, I wouldn't even know what future date to change my trip to.
CDC has a Level 3 warning that travelers avoid all nonessential travel to the UK and Ireland. My trip is certainly nonessential. It's unconscionable at this point with the global pandemic being declared to absolutely refuse to issue refunds in the wake of borders closing, all schools closing, many businesses and tourist attractions shutting.
Governments are asking people not to gather in groups more than 10 and advising self isolation, yet Aer Lingus expects to board hundreds of people into an aircraft? Am I missing something?
I would appreciate any feedback or perspectives on your own upcoming trip to Ireland.
