My family and I were suppose to fly out of Istanbul, Turkey on August 4, 2013. Our booked flights are Fort Lauderdale to Rome, Italy.
Then we were going to fly Istanbul back to Fort Lauderdale. However, Turkey is experiencing political unrest and I would like to fly my family back to the Fort Lauderdale, US via Rome, Italy. I have two young children and my spouse traveling with me.
Furthermore, my friends residing in Istanbul state that it is NOT safe to visit. Delta Customer Service explained to me that we can fly there no problem the political climate is fine or if Delta changes our flights I will be charged $1,000 per person for a total of $4,000.
