Expedia just informed me that my flight with Ukrainian International Airlines was canceled. I'm flying from NYC to Kiev. This is an important business trip and I ordered tickets 2 months ago. Expedia is offering me options 2 days before and 2 days after, but neither are good for me. The issue is not so much cost (though it is a pain), but more so the schedule. I really would prefer to leave on my selected date.
They are also offering a full refund, but I would end up losing a lot of money because I need to buy to tickets just 2 weeks in advance.
What are my options? Are airlines really allowed to just cancel on my reservation at a whim just 2 weeks in advance? I really feel screwed over here. Are there any rules or regulations that can help me?
