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.
Very happy with the service. Many thanks to Kelly who made me feel at ease. In future all my travel will be booked through DialAFlight.
Would like to mention Bailey who was fantastic when I was quite stressed about getting my daughter home and changing her flight. He was brilliant and made everything very straightforward. I have recommended DialAFlight to lots of my friends - no-one else I would use.
We’ve “shopped” with you for years and never doubted your professionalism, commitment to your customers and your very competitive prices. However, when we recently had to abort our travelling and get home, from the USA, you came into your own. Sean was wonderful and got us new flights in minutes. It made a very stressful time much more bearable and manageable. This was whilst a friend was simultaneously trying to get information and change her flights with on online provider. She was on the phone for 5 hours!
Excellent service - Scott was very helpful. He went the extra mile to make sure that we were able to get home in these very uncertain times and followed up with a call just to make sure that everything had been good
Always so helpful
Cannot rate you highly enough. Got us home from USA with minimum fuss in these troubled times. Will tell all far and wide how good you are.
Due to current situation we had to curtail our holiday and come home early. Lincoln was helpful and sorted everything for us in a very calm and efficient way. We have and will continue to recommend DialAFlight to friends.
Many thanks to Declan who was very pleasant whenever we spoke to him, and very supportive when we had flights cancelled. Well done!
Thank you so much especially to Roy, Elliot and all the other members of your team who went to extraordinary lengths to help me get home to the UK in these challenging times. I really appreciate the care and attention and will certainly continue to recommend your service to others.
Zayne again bent over backwards to help in these uncertain times. He made everything easy and put us at ease. We would not deal with anyone else
Can’t praise DialAFlight enough. Adrian was able to help us to return to England from the USA by working on our behalf to get us an earlier flight home. We are so grateful for his help
Your advice and help were spot on. Jay is a star. Home safe and delighted we chose to book flights through you,
After finding out twice that our flights were cancelled and offered a flight home by Delta and an unsuitable alternative we contacted your emergency department. They could not have been more helpful in sorting out an alternative flight. I would like to thank all your staff especially Rory who we have contacted for all our travel arrangements for the last three years.
We had to change our flight back home because of the covid19 situation. I phoned the emergency number and a very nice young man named Shane sorted out our change of flights. So glad I booked with DialAFlight.
As always Manny goes above and beyond. With my daughter's flight being cancelled Manny actually called me the same evening to rebook an alternative flight. Simply the best!
Acted quickly to get us home from USA during corona crisis. AA changed the flight you booked twice and rerouted us through JFK but at least we were on the list. Thank you Cooper and Stafford
Excellent service in a difficult situation returning from the States early because of CV. Again DialAFlight have ‘come up trumps’.
Thanks Chris for getting me home safely. Hope you and your staff keep well. Hopefully booking again once madness dies down.
I had to get back from USA early as they cancelled my flights. Leah was exceptional and got me sorted out and reassured me despite her being ill herself. What an asset to your Company. I have told all my family and friends how great you are. My American friends were amazed how accessible Leah was and how quickly issues were sorted out. Fantastic!
Some of this flight might be intense, but trust your guide and be brave.' The words of warning came from Dr Jackie Ogden as our group gathered in the Link Chamber of the Pandora Conservation Initiative. We had already been through the Genetic Matching Room and been decontaminated for micro-parasites, and were being given the final sequence of instructions before being let loose on the alien planet.
THE ADVENTURE BEGINS
With the final motivational message of 'Rise to the challenge!' we were swooping off across the otherworldly terrain and lush foliage of Pandora on the back of a Mountain Banshee, the gigantic dragon-like beast from Alpha Centauri that eats people for breakfast.
Fortunately - or unfortunately, depending on your level of bravery - all this excitement was purely man-made. Or, we should say more accurately, Disneymade. Because we were in the Animal Kingdom theme park in the heart of Walt Disney World, Orlando.
A WHOLE NEW WORLD
Pandora: The World Of Avatar is the latest attraction built by the House of Mouse - with the help of film-maker James Cameron - in its vast Florida resort. It has taken seven years to complete.
While some Disney die-hards doubted the wisdom of such an obvious film franchise being successfully shoe-horned into this most naturalistic of parks, the end result is a 12-acre immersive environment that is so packed with features and special effects it would take a small book rather than one article to list them all.
It starts with the Floating Mountains that seemingly hover over the area - gigantic, 156ft-tall rockworks that are complete creatures and waterfalls – and continues through a junglelike panorama of immense complexity, studded with the bioluminescent plants from the 2009 movie that are all recreated in amazingly painstaking detail. They include some examples that react to touch and movement using specially developed sensors.
Cleverly hidden among the alien terrain - which mixes artificial plants with real ones from Hawaii and Africa - are two contrasting rides that take the story of Avatar into the future, 100 years after the war between Earth's Resource Development Administration and the indigenous Na'vi people.
RIDE OF YOUR LIFE
The Na'vi River Journey is a meandering boat ride through the Pandoran jungle, usingwith vegetation, a mix of animatronics and screen projections to create a stunningly realistic series of encounters with the flora, fauna and people. It takes an ecofriendly approach, highlighting conservation principles and real-world issues such as habitat destruction.
After this the action intensifies - Avatar Flight Of Passage kicks things up several notches with the aforementioned simulator ride in the company of Dr Ogden. Sitting astride a kind of stationary bike (and equipped with 3-D glasses), riders seemingly dive, twist and turn in through a long whirl over Pandora, taking in the sights and sounds that made the film such a visual extravaganza.
There also ought to be a special award for the Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse with its neon blue a there is such a thing as alien looking food, this is it.
Even James Cameron was apparently initially surprised at the huge scale of Disney's plans when they approached him with the idea of Avatar Lane. He said: 'I thought we were going to be talking about creating an attraction. Disney’s vision when they came to me was to create a land.'
ART & ENGINEERING
It has been reported that the area cost up to 500-million dollars to complete. It features music composed by the late James Horner and Simon Franglen, based on the original score from Avatar.
The final word, though, deserves to come from Disney's Zsolt Hormay: 'We had to use a lot of experts to help us with the technology. It needed a lot of different skills. It melds art and engineering. It is like finishing a painting, only in three dimensions - and with a lot of engineering.'
