The 'extra' flights have been showing on the BA website for some weeks

...it is only returning to the pre 'recession ' timetable and is not just for the high season ...presently listed until September 2010

Until the 30th March there are 2 flights per day on Saturday Sunday and Tuesday ....outbound at 11.00 and 13.15 inbound times vary from 16.40 -21.01

From 1st April they are Thursday , Tuesday and Sunday ...outbound at 11.15 and 12.05 .......inbound at 16.40 and 21.00

So 4 extra outbound flights out in the Easter week but only 3 extra for returning 7 or 14 days later ...some of the inbound flights are almost sold out !!!

Difficult to judge the effect on prices as yet ...... Economy ...£569 return for late May /early June

.... but Easter is still very high at £820 - £996 ( BA website) depending on when you leave

I wish the later flights had been there when we booked .. 4+ more hours on the beach !!! ... but then again we only paid £485 for a departure on 31st March ....via those great people at Mr Newmont
