My christmas flight home!

Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

Just back from the travel agents to go and pay for my ticket home for christmas.

What had started out as a very good value £348 - unfortunately rose quite a lot, when the airport tax went from an estimated modest £90 - up to an actual whopping £198 - thus bringing the total flight cost to £456 :cry:

Anyway, tears aside, here is the schedule:

  • Thursday December 13th : Cathay Pacific #CX465 (1415 / 1605)
  • Tuesday December 18th : British Airways #BA28 (01:10 / 0620)
  • Tuesday February 5th : British Airways #BA27 (2155 / 1750 +1)
  • Wednesday February 6th : Cathay Pacific #CX468 (2000 / 2135)

Which means I get yet another holiday this year, this time in Hong Kong for 5 days - just need to sort out a relatively cheap hotel or hostel and that’s all sorted.

And also sorry dad about the landing time - there weren’t any other flights available, though I’ll understand if it’s too early and you want me to get a train…. honest :p
