Default Easyjet Geneva queue

Yesterday the Easyjet queue snaked round the zone 5 end of the
departures hall, all the way down the hall and out of the zone 1
entrance. I don't suppose that this is a record!

On the +ve side this was the first time in four years that our flight at
18:45 to Gatwick was not cancelled.

British Airways scheduled, booked well in advance, is sometimes cheaper,
and generally not much more, and doesn't have all the Easyjet
disadvantages.

Oh, and this year has been booked for a family of four on the frequent
flyer miles, so free, which is even better....

Not "free" though, if it's BA, as you still have to pay all the taxes
with real money.


Ours was 20 a head. Doesn't Sleazyjet charge that for a suitcase or
summat?

You're right, though - some rewards schemes are more generous. OTOH,
Anne and I are both BA Silver, so we get an extra baggage allownace
(very useful, is that), and access to the BA lounge at LHR, plus one
guest each, so that takes care of everything.


Anyway, where are you off to - the usual cheepskate Bareges?


Les Portes du Soleil, on 5 January. Staying in Avoriaz.

One of my better efforts was to get my business class ticket from
Washington to London upgraded to Concorde. Apart from the upgrade I
also got the Concorde airmile allowance. Enough for a return trip to
Zurich with the family.
