Stranded Travellers

  Quickbeam 11:30 24 Apr 2010

They seem to have been forgotten my Europe's governments now. Today's paper reported that Virgin and BA were asking travellers on flights booked a while ago to volunteer to postpone their flight if possible, so that stranded tourists can be gotten home.

Speaking to my sister in Italy, they have the same problem there. It looks like a case of 'out of sight, out of mind'. I'm surprised that GB thinks he can take that line with an election just around the corner.

Some of the airlines are also seeking advice as to 'who is going to pay for all this'. Especially were claims and expenses are involved by passenger's.

The priority is to get them back to the UK,which if the reports are right thats whats happening.

No doubt some passengers will end up having to pay their own return costs

I saw some interviews with stranded passengers recently,one said "I haven't the cash to pay extra as I'm on disability" :(
