Default Help! United airlines flights canceled

Olga at Barcelona Spine Center said that they are receiving some patients from the U.S. through special consideration by the Ministry of Interior.

One is even coming from Hawaii.

We booked through United Vacations and United Airlines canceled our domestic flights into our connecting International air city Toronto Canada.

How is air from a city we can't get to going to do us any good?!

I tired to go to the https: address they gave in their recording, but it say page not available, and of course with the holiday, there was no one there to take a call. They say not to call unless you're traveling in the next 72 hours! How in the HELL is anyone e able to arrange traveling within 72 hours?

I will never book with the United Vacations again. Thus is our 2nd trip we booked since February 2020 and will lose another $300 in Tripmate Cancel for any reason insurance.

What a scam!!!!!!

Are there any carriers out of DFW that are flying nonstop to Barcelona?

Two thoughts, if they might help. First, it sounds like you need a direct flight from anywhere in the US to Barcelona plus a flight from DFW to the international flight departure point within the US. You can fly around the US; you just, from what you said, move around Europe.

Second, try looking at the reverse on something like Travelocity or Kayak. Look for a departure from Barcelona with a lay-over within the US. Figure out which airline or airlines let you do that and book the reverse flights.
