his passport, ID and cash was stolen in Holland. Was able to get a pass to England and we got the airfare paid but we can't get Embassy to issue a new passport. Now learns he's on the do not fly list. How do we get this rectified? I flew to London to help him out and gave him cash assuming it wold be corrected in a few days. Those few days are long gone. We can't wire more money as he doesn't have ID. We are at our wits end in figuring this out. One option is for him to fly to British Columbia and I drive there to pick him up and drive him across the border...not sure how feasible that is.
He needs to contact the U.S. embassy closest to him. Its their job to assist USC abroad in these types of situations. Are they the ones that put him on the "do not fly list?".

You don't say which embassy won't issue a passport. Presumably not the US Embassy. With a passport, your Canada solution might work. Hard to travel without one. You also don't say what your partner's US status is.
Except contacting the consulate I see nothing else that you can do. I agree that Canada solution can work, unless Canada also placed him on a similar list.
