As previously known about 443 flight schedules experienced a delay, thus making some tourists seem disappointed, but can understand the situation that happened.
Of course there are states of force majeure that make passengers protected by expanding the validity of the ticket, change the route of travel, to change the name.
Some airlines provide policies that help passengers, quoting KompasTravel, November 27, as stated by Garuda Indonesia airline Hengki Heriandono, "Passengers can extend ticket validity up to six months since force majeure, change route of travel - reroute, change name passenger and applies only one replacement only, or to perform a 'full refund' in accordance with applicable provisions."
There is no choice with the situation, especially the traveler, forced to delay the return flight plan from Bali today, because the closure of Airport I Gusti Ngurah Rai still extended until tomorrow.
The management of the airport must take this decision due to volcanic ash Mount Agung is considered still dangerous, such as reviews in detikTravel, today, solely for the safety of passengers and flights that will take place thereafter.
