Booked 6 flights to Thailand with Eva Air through Airline network a month ago with final balance due 8 weeks before travel in May. I received an urgent email and phone call from Airline Network on Tues wanting full balance for flights by Sat due to demand from airline or flights would be cancelled. Any one heard of this before? Am alarmed at the short timescale involved and wondered what would happen if I was on holiday and didn't pick up message. I know I will be covered if I pay by credit card but alarm bells are ringing. Am I obliged to pay in full now?

Sounds dodgy, as if they are days from going under and need some cash now. hmm

I would google about a bit to see if there are any rumours on the web.

I assume you have it in writing that the balance is not due till March? And you have paid a deposit?

Yes thats right - not a problem paying on credit card but just feel bullied into making payment.
