Excellent service. Kept us fully informed of changes and travel restrictions. Can’t praise them enough
Very grateful for your help in amending my flights home from the USA several times recently under difficult circumstances,

Great service from all the team especially Tristan
Really very good service. Keep up good work.
Five Star performance, with special mention of Shane, who was on call 24/7 to help with covid-related travel questions. Flights were cancelled four times and yet each time support was provided professionally and with grace.
Spencer dealt with me as if I was his most important client. I have never dealt with a person so patient and he goes beyond what is required. He is a fantastic professional
Niall was very helpful and kept me in touch with flight changes which was very reassuring in the current times.
Great as always
Excellent communication at all times, reassuring to know someone is always on the end of the phone if needed. Very professional service
As usual your team is so helpful and in this case also very sympathetic to the reasons I was travelling on this occasion
DialFlight are an excellent service that I have used for years and have never let me down
Many, many thanks for getting us home early - you always do what you say
As always DialAFlight did an excellent job to find us a flight home when the airline didn’t bother to answer our email. We went all round the world and not one flight was delayed - if there was a time change we got an email to notify us.
Amazing service from Declan, during the worry of Covid-19. He swiftly arranged changes for our daughters' return flights from USA to be brought forward. Managed to get them on a flight within 48 hrs! Such a relief for us with the awful situation and would not use anybody else but this company. Been using them for over 3 yrs, excellent service every time.
Thanks for getting me home Owen
Stepped up to the plate in difficult circumstances
The last BA flight to leave Miami for the foreseeable future! You did your part but we felt BA could have done very much better in respect of the alcohol and food service (or lack of) on a club class flight
Doug was excellent as always
Thanks again Eric and team. You got me home after my flight was cancelled. Hope you are all safe and well and that I can book with you again after all this madness is over!
Faced with flight cancellations due to Covid19 the team did everything to get us back home to the UK - many thanks
Big thanks to Roy and Elliot who are real superstars and gave excellent customer service. I remembered that I flew a few years ago and booked with DialAFlight and that the service was good - and lo and behold I got the same guys/team again. Please pass on my thanks to them for changes that were made to my flight- I just about made it out in the nick of time before they closed all the airports!
We dealt with Ruby who did an amazing job of helping us book what should have been a fantastic holiday. We then dealt with Morgan which was challenging as we were away during the Covid 19 outbreak. She took great care of us during this period, changing car hire and hotel bookings to suit the ever changing situation, to eventually arranging our early return home when Virgin cancelled our flight.
We arrived in New York on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when the city goes into a retail frenzy.
With hindsight, it was probably not the best day to choose. However, as a professional cricketer, it's not easy to find time to get away for a holiday - we play Tests at home during the summer and head overseas for tours in the winter. Fortunately, I managed to fit in this short trip to New York in between the series against Pakistan and the current one against South Africa.
Neither my wife Alice nor I had been to the Big Apple before so it was a bit of an adventure for both of us. I travel to a lot of countries around the world but I rarely have the chance to do touristy things - usually the most I get to see is a cricket ground, the hotel and the airport.
Alice and I usually prefer to get away from it all at a rural spot somewhere for a little relaxation. As you can imagine, New York was an entirely different prospect. But as we had only four days in which to enjoy ourselves, we thought we would try something different.
We stayed at the Mandarin Oriental at the southern end of Central Park on Columbus Circle. The view from our room was jaw-dropping. It certainly had the 'wow' factor. After dumping our luggage, we set out to explore the city and quickly discovered how easy it is to get from one place to another, whether you want to walk, take the subway or flag down one of the city's famous yellow taxis.
Since this was only a short break, we had to plan our visit pretty carefully to make sure we saw all the places we wanted. First on our list was the Ground Zero memorial at the site of the World Trade Center, where the new Freedom Tower now stands. We didn't have time to visit the museum - the queue was massive - but we were impressed by the poignant memorial, which records the names of all the victims of the September 11 attacks. The memorial consists of a field of trees interrupted by the footprints of the Twin Towers which are filled with water.
Like most people, I can recall exactly what I was doing on 9/11. I was 16 at the time, and watched on TV the horrifying moments when the planes crashed into the towers. I was very shaken, so visiting the site was an incredibly moving experience. Alice and I didn't bring our seven-month old baby Elsie with us this time - we'll take her when she's old enough to appreciate it.
Having a few days without her meant we could take advantage of the New York nightlife. One evening we headed to Broadway to see the musical Chicago, and another night we went to see the New York Knicks lose to the Houston Rockets at Madison Square Garden. I don't claim to know a huge amount about basketball, but the atmosphere inside the stadium was electric.
We had planned to do a little shopping, but having landed on Black Friday, we quickly realised we had arrived at a challenging time for hitting the stores. Still, it was interesting to see New Yorkers rushing to snap up bargains in famous stores such as Saks, Bloomingdale's and Macy's.
One of the most exciting things for me was just standing in the heart of Times Square. It's a place you've seen in films so many times that you feel you've been there before.
Alice and I headed to New York with high expectations and the city more than lived up to them. And having a few days away from the cricket field meant I could eat whatever I wanted. One morning I had waffles and ice cream for breakfast just because I could. Delicious.
You often hear that New Yorkers can be rude and abrupt, but we didn't find that. At the basketball match, for example, we found everyone was very welcoming.
Playing cricket does take to you such wonderful places around the world. They do play cricket in New York - there are a lot of people from the Caribbean living and working in the city - so perhaps one day I might play there too. Like most things in the Big Apple, I'm sure it will be extraordinary and unforgettable.
