    My husband and I had to come back to Dublin on 5th October instead of the 9th October because our flight was cancelled .
    We lost holiday time and not offered any compensation . Dub-Ath -Heraklion both ways . Hoping we will hear back as we will travel same next year . We had booked 3 weeks
    We were flight only and also seats we paid for were changed instead of out seats at the first isle at the front of the plane . Like to fly Agean although not happy this year .
