Following on from the doom and gloom of the sudden demise of XL I thought I would have an early look at prices for next year's school hols dates around Easter for 3 of us.
easyJet's prices not yet released and others kicking about in the ?300 to ?400 per person bracket so I thought I'd have a look at one of those comparison websites....
the best deal I could find on one, which I must share with you, was admittedly a one-stop at Madrid on the way flight taking a total of eleven and three quarter hours to get there. Dates 04/04/09 to 18/04/09 and "economy class".
The total price for all 3 is shown as ?4606.80p !!!! - but this does helpfully include "all taxes"
The question that caused me to ponder on this for just under one nanosecond was - should I go ahead and book ? The answer was "No"
This is all a bit silly but why would they advertise flights at these sorts of prices if no-one actually purchased them ?
