Ours is still sat at Saturday to Saturday as the flights havenít been released yet. Hoping they change to the Friday instead of Manchester if there are changes to be made

I get how you are feeling but paying for 14 and only getting 13 with no reduction in cost?
Surely youíll have a word with them about that?

Oh yes, definitely, whenever we can get through to them or they eventually decide to contact us! I just meant the alternatives aren't really an option for us so I don't think we can extend the holiday any or go indirect.

It's still not changed on VH manage my booking yet for us so I'm assuming when it does there will be an option to contact them to discuss it and we'll be asking for some form of compensation for the lost day then 🙂

Just had a call from Virgin Holidays as I filled out the form a month ago to change our accommodation booking to August 2021.

They confirmed that Virgin Atlantic will not be flying next year from Belfast.

Do they:
1. Change your flight to a day early
2. Make the return flight non direct
3. Allow to book for 17 days


It seems inevitable that in 2 weeks time Iíll be dealing with this and Iím looking to be prepared for how to discuss things with them.

We're the opposite, they've extended us from 14 to 17 nights (supposed to be Fri to Fri now we're Wed to Fri). Also like you though we didn't get a say, it was just changed automatically on the date our seats became available to book on the flights. I got an email saying our booking was updated & when I logged on that's when I seen the changes (booked seats on the flights too just incase)

Manage my booking on the VH website updated to the new outbound date (inbound hadn't changed) - but they've also added on a random passenger to our booking & not extended our hotel stay, so they've made a mess of it.

Now I've got an email today asking to make a payment to get our Disney tickets so we can book the park days, but the amount they have quoted me to pay to get the tickets makes no sense & I can't speak to anyone as we're not travelling within the next 14 days.

I had a wee soft spot for VH & always preferred them with direct being an advantage... but I'm starting to get fed up with it all!

Yeah, that's consistent with what I'm hearing, they seem to be shortening the holiday for people going out on Saturdays and extending it for people going out on Fridays! My brother is going out a week before us on a Friday and this is exactly what has happened to his booking too.

We're the same, always loved VH but it's wearing thin now. I wish they'd just announce what it is they are doing and stick with it so everyone knows where they stand and can make alternative arrangements if needed.

Exactly this - Hubby & I have spoken & said we'd be fine to do the extra nights so long as those extra nights in the hotel don't cost too much... but I've went in to try & do a booking at the hotel for the few extra nights & it says there's no availability, that's worrying. Plus we have car hire so would need to amend that too.

Same here, I just want to know my dates so I can sort car hire etc out - my annual leave in work shouldn't be too bad as I had already booked the Thursday - Fri off, so just 1 more day at the start to book.

I'm hoping with non essential retail in shopping centres opening on Monday the VH stores will announce opening dates & we can nip over to Braehead & see someone. Would rather speak to someone face to face & just sort it out. I don't want to cancel, just sort my booking... then I'll maybe then feel a bit better about having to pay out for Disney tickets so early to book the parks

I have to say though, Iím a bit annoyed about the confirmation on Twitter that they were flying every Friday and Saturday from the 2nd January. I mean I didnít really believe them but thatís not the point.
