How much extra would the Athens flight of cost mate?
I'm so depressed today, got two more days booked off work wasted aswell.
it was £213 - there was at least 6 hrs to get from Luton to Heathrow to make the first flight so could easily have been done - I had filled in all my card details etc and was about to 'click' to book it when I bottled it. Someone said there were delays at Heathrow and there might have been a chance of missing the connection at Athens .
After a similar experience on the way to Naples when we missed a connection due to delays at JLA and ended up kipping at Milan airport ( and forking out an extra £350 ) I thought I wouldn't risk it and may as well cut my losses and go home - fully expecting to get stranded somewhere on the M6 or something similar ( there was actually no problem with the roads home).
As it happens it would have been ok as the flight from Heathrow got to Athens with enough time to make the connection. Just as frustrating is the fact that the Blue air flight this morning looks ok - the last seat on that went just as I got to the front of the queue.
Not long ago I'd have had no hesitation in going for that Heathrow/Athens flight but maybe I'm losing a bit of that inner fire that I've had all these years .
Quite looking forward to a day and a half of chillin out now although probably be mega pissed off while the match is on. Was supposed to be back in work tomorrow afternoon anyway so won't have the worry of not getting back in time on friday morning.
