Text from BA yesterday morning to tell me the flight was cancelled
So Sunday, Monday and Tuesday’s flights were all cancelled. BA don’t fly on Wednesday to London from SH and Thursday’s flight not surprisingly, is fully booked. So I’ve managed to book myself on to Friday’s flight which gets me home on Christmas eve night, JUST in time for the big day. It means I get just over a week in London instead of the 2 weeks I had planned, but the important thing is I get to see my family and share Christmas with them, assuming no more snow hits London in the next two days.
Of course it’s not just me and it’s not just air travel that’s been affected. The Eurostar service from Paris to London has had big delays, as has the British rail network and of course the roads aren’t in good shape either – a friend of mine took 12 hours to drive from London to York yesterday.
And it’s not just The UK. I have friends stranded in Paris and Frankfurt to name a few as well as a cousin who’s waiting to fly to HK from London.
So all in all it’s a nightmare and for many, this Christmas is a write off. I’m still hoping mine isn’t!
