Loads of posts last summer but wondering what the flights from Manchester have been like this year please?
Thanks for all the comments folks. I may have to have second thoughts about this one; waiting to see if Geoff's mobility improves so may miss out on a second trip.
Yes on Alonissos now spoke to people who came in last night minus luggage told still in Gatwick' hopefully no loaded on to other flight..
What a nightmare, what's going on at Gatwick luggage handling? Many problems reported this week on the news here.
But SP not to blame, surely?
I think the problem was with the handlers Swissport at Gatwick and affected quite a few of the tour operators so clearly not confined to SPA.
It will be there handling agent 'poss swiss port not sure who the use..
Just to clarify, by SP I meant Small Planet - not Swissport! Yes, the blame seems to be with Swissport, which is why I read that Gatwick have drafted in extra employees directly employed by the airport to help.
Swissport operate all over the world, it must be a local issue.
Unfortunately we were on the gatwick flight yesterday, didn't mind the 2hour delay but really cheesed off that 1 out of 2 suitcases was left behind. The Mrs one. Spent yesterday and today getting neccessitys for her. Will be claiming compensation though. The couple next to me on the plane didn't get any luggage at all. And another couple with a 10 week old baby going to skopelos had luggage missing. Had a great time last night though and just sat outside the school before we go to Marmita. Last update from monarch rep was that they were hoping to send luggage to Athens then on to Skiathos. Fingers crossed it will be here soon, l hate shopping ha ha
Suitcase arrived today, 5 days late.Still having a great time.Currently having rain thunder and lightning in town.
