We were supposed to be off to Turkey next year with XL. Just hope we can get our money back- have already raised it with the credit card company!

We flew with XL to Florida a couple of months ago - planes and service truely awful. must be terrible for anyone booked to go away / be stranded - raspberrytart i really hope you manage to get your honeymoon sorted

We have got a flight on Wednesday-hurrah!

Yes I know McDreamy.We can't believe it either,but she is desperate to get home,so she's taken the only thing available.

The worst part is she has her downs syndrome son with her who has been traumatised by a dental experience out there, and is very stressed by it all and just wants to get home to his familiar surroundings.sad

What a sad story Sawyer. Poor people. Have a lovely honeymoon raspberry - glad you got it sorted.

We are hoping to book flights with Easyjet next April - I am just waiting for them to go bust next.

No, Alitalia will be next. They were given an extension until today to get their buyer sorted tho' the strike earlie this week that grounded 50 flights will not have helped that.

Thats awful Sawyer
Thanks Fimbo seem to have had the phone glued to my ear all day but at least we are going. some people have booked direct with xl and may not be as lucky.
