This is my second email to you with no feedback from you since the first email sent on Friday, 12/12/08.
I am filing charges against travelocity for failing to uphold their policy, I have now been on the phone for 2 hours8 minutes and 12 seconds with Andy Marshall in India, regarding my son and his room mates flight to Tirana.
All this trouble started on Friday evening when the NWA agent would not let Sandi leave and then your agent made my son cancle his reservation since they were booked together, now you want to charge my son a $280.00 rebooking fee. Your repersentatives keep changing their minds about what they will and will not allow.
On Friday, 12/12/05 I spoke with Joe Martin another supervisor in India that stated the travelers would have a voucher good for 1134.90 of which would be good until 11/8/09. He stated they travelers would be able to use this voucher for any flight within the next 12 months, I asked what if the flight they chose was less than the amount orginally spent, he stated that since the policy was one of which could not be refunded another credit would be issued for the difference and it would then be good for 12 months from the date the new credit was created. Now I have been on the phone with Andy Marshall another supervisor of which stated he could book the travelers on flight 72 leaving DTW @ 6:05 am arrving in JFK and leaving JFK at 4:40pm arriving in Istanbul at 9:55am on 12/15/08 and returning on January9th on flight 73 from Istanbul arriving at JFK at 450 and departing at 6:55 on flight 6718 arriving in Detroit at 9:26pm on 1/9. He stated the fare difference with the rebooking fee would be $371.00 per person, we agreed to this but then he put me on hold for another 25 minutes and came back and said that when he went to book the flight the fare came up at $10710.00 and that since it was lower he could not book the flight, I explained to him what we were told and he stated there was nothing he could do, I asked to speak to his supervisor and this is where my email will come to an end and continue on once his supervisor comes to the phone.
My issue here is that your people have done nothing to make this work except change there mind and blame Northwest stating all these changes and policies are NWA policies, however we have spoke with NWA ourselves and they have stated they have nothing and can do nothing since the flight was booke with Travelocity, apparently they are fed up with Travelocity as well since they have been getting numerous calls and complaints about flights that are messed up and no other flights made possible for the travelers.
As I have explained, to all your agents and supervisors as well as Kimberly in the Phili office that Sandi has an appointment with the Embassy to renew his visa on 12/22 and it is very important to get them to Tirana.
I demand someone contact me immediately to resolve this issue that is obviously a TRAVELOCITY issue!.
Please note my next call will be to my attorney to discuss filing chages against travelocity for failing to comply with their own policies.

On November 11, 2008 my son Steven Gladden and room mate Sandi Xhumari
booked a flight from Detroit to Tirana, Albiana. At no point and time were
they ever informed that Sandi would need
an additional visa or pass port since they were traveling through multiple
countries before reaching their destination. Upon arrival to Detroit Metro
airport my son (Steven Gladden) was checked in with no problem.
When Sandi went to check in he was told they would not let him travel since
he did not have another visa to travel through Hungray, his pass port is
from Albiana. Needless to say they made my son cancle his
flight as well since the tickets were booked together.
At 6:00pm we began calling Travelocity for assistance to get the young men
to their destination, I spoke with Joe Martin the supevisor and he stated
that he would provide the travelers with a voucher good for 12 months travel
they wished to go and stated that a re-booking fee may be applied upon
After my conversation with Nina today she stated they young men could only
travel on Northwest Airlines. Our issue here is we keep getting the run
around with the customer service people you have us dealing with, after
numerous conversations and hours spent on the computer and phone trying to
get the young men rescheduled we have hit a brick wall. We desperately need
to get Sandi Xhumari home before December 22nd as he has an appointment to
renew his visa, he is a student here in the United Stated and needs to keep
this appointment. Your assistance is greately needed here to get this young
man home before December 22nd at a resonable rate.
Please contact me as soon as possible to discuss how we can make this happen
