    • On Sept. 9 2021 we cancelled our trip with Viking Travel to Paris and return. We understood that Viking had notified British Air and that we would receive a voucher to be used later. We have not received anything as of this date. The Viking Air Number was KSKYKD. BA Flight #309. Will we still be able to get the flight vouchers?
