OK as promised yesterday, my easyjet rant!!
We arrived at Belfast international airport on Thursday afternoon to catch our easyjet flight to London, we had 55kg of luggage in 2 bags to check in, 30kg of which was clothes and toys for the orphanage, we are actually allowed 50kg of luggage EACH but if there is more than 20kg per individual bag they charge extra.
We hoped that when we explained at the desk that it was aid for an orphanage there would be no fee, or at least a small fee. How naive we were, for the extra 16kg they charged us...... wait for it..... £100!?!! £100?? That's almost as much as both our tickets combined!! The girl on the desk told us it didn't matter that it was for an orphanage they had to charge extra, her manager said the same thing when we asked him as well!! So there we where, at the desk faced with 3 choices,
1. Leave the orphanage bag behind.
2. Go home
3. Be gouged by easyjet, pay the cash and whinge at the girl behind the easyjet desk.
We chose option 3
So in future, unless the alternative is walking, I'm never, ever going to fly easyjet again!! The boycott starts here! -.-
In other news, we fly to Kazakhstan in 5 hours *gulp*
