Having difficulty with NVDA on an airline website

Good day,

 

Greetings from South Africa.

 

I’m having difficulties booking a flight on a local airline website.  I am not sure if it is an NVDA issue or not.  My issue is with the selecting of the departure and return dates.  The issue is as follows:

 

I want to travel from Cape Town to Durban.  My departure date is the 14th of June 2019.  On the 17th June I want to go back from Durban to Cape Town – thus a round trip.  I don’t have an issue with selecting the departure date (which is the 14th of June.)  However, when I select the return date (which is the 17th of June), NVDA says “selection removed.”  What happens then is that the departure moves to the 10th of June, instead of the 14th June, thus a week back from the return date.  In short:  when I select the return date, the departure date automatically moves a week back from the return date.

 

The edit boxfor the dates are read only so I have to use the arrows to select the departure and return dates.  However, when I select the return date, and the departure moves a week back automatically, the arrows don’t function at all in the departure date edit box.  So I cannot change the departure date.

 

I realy hope this is clear enough.  I include the website of the airline for reference and if you would like to give it a try.

If this is not an NVDA issue, I do apologise.

 

You must have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to your reply.
