    And because it's me and this is my life, KLM sent automatic refunds to everyone whose flight was cancelled, but lucky me, my flight is one of the few still going. So I'm still waiting to hear back about a voucher.

    Most of their flights were cancelled but I guess every airline still has a few going through, lord knows why. Repatriation? Supplies? I have no idea. But mine isn't cancelled. SO HERE I SIT. At work instead of packing, with $1,000 just hanging in the balance.

    Solidarity. Was supposed to be on my way to Japan and Air Canada cancelled our flights but is making it very difficult to get a refund

    We are waiting for our Mediterranean cruise to be cancelled so we get a refund instead of a voucher and hoping the cruise line doesn't go bankrupt in the meantime.

    I'm not really expecting KLM to give me a hard time about the voucher, I applied for it through their own little suggestion box on my trip page in the first place, and they're a reputable airline. They refunded everyone with cancelled flights no problem. And if possible, we'll take the same trip at the same time next year instead so a voucher is okay.

    BUT STILL. Sucks.

    We had to cancel 3 trips since lockdown started (Vegas, Omaha and Boston, we had planned to go to Boston Calling but it's canceled) and I keep holding onto the June and July ones even though I know they won't happen, they make me feel better to still be there now.

    I'm extra sad about the canceling of the Boston trip for obvious reasons.

    Same, we still want to go to Boston sometime and will definitely make that happen when this is all over.

    Kids love to travel too! It’s a different experience completely but totally worth it.

    I had to cancel my Toronto trip. I was so looking forward to a possible chicken meet up.

    Do you think TSA would be overly suspicious of someone traveling with a carseat but no child?

    I mean, they might ask questions, but I've had friends who have done it (going to meet their child out of state at the hospital where the birth mom was located).

    I don't think so - it probably happens a lot in joint custody situations. My friend used to fly with car seat/stroller/PNP bimonthly to visit his daughter out of state. His ex wouldn't let him use any of her baby things or keep his own items at her house.

    I think it’ll be fine but also @Comet goddamn that’s some petty shit.

    @CoolWife oh yeah, she was a spiteful bitch. I'm usually very "two sides to every story" but that situation was very, very heavily skewed to one end. She got pregnant while they were both in professional school and she moved out of state because he did not want to have a shotgun wedding. He didn't even want to break up, just wasn't ready to get married. He dodged a bullet there. Eventually her parents let him secretly keep his baby items at their house so he didn't have to schlep them on a plane every other week.

    Well, its official. My inlaws 50th anniversary multi-family cruise to Italy and Greece has been cancelled. And same with our "before" trip to Venice, and our "after" trip to visit my relatives in Slovenia. I know its for the absolute best....our health, other people's health...not to mention most of the borders are still closed and the uncertainty of it all would be a nightmare. However, still sad.

    Will hold out hope that parts of the trip can happen next summer.
