Airline traumas...

So, a few weeks ago we booked flights to return to Ireland after Christmas.  This was a very complicated procedure as there are no direct flights to the UK and there are multiple options for travel that vary hugely in price.  We eventually booked through a low-cost carrier and were happy as Larry himself to have that job done!

Yesterday, however, we received an email from one of the airlines we are planning to use to say that they were changing their destination in London from Stansted to Gatwick.  Not a big problem, I'm sure, if it's only London you are flying to.  Also, not a big problem if you have a connecting flight with the same airline.  Not so for the Hamills!!  So I have wasted an hour this afternoon trying to amend our flight schedule.  We'll have to await responses to the various emails I have now sent to see if any of this time has been well spent!
