Er, No.
Due to its location in the Caribbean Sea, Barbados is fortunate to not experience hurricanes in the last who knows how many decades,which have devastated other Caribbean islands and parts of the US.
Instead they experience tropical storms (quite scary heavy winds, rough seas) which clips the island as it travels further up the Caribbean then turns into a hurricane (for their Caribbean neighbours & US).

I would love to go at this price however prepping the minion for upcoming GCSEs.
Should be a criminal offence the prices the travel industry is allowed to charge during school holidays!! oO

If was early September I'd bite but I'm pretty sure they've had massive hurricanes most October's for the last few years years haven't they?

I went to Cancun in Late Sept / Early Oct once and the weather was still absolutely roasting, sure the odd tropical downpour for half hour and then clear skies again. Won't be the same everywhere but could well be a cheeky bargain

This is not a good time of year to experience a great resort. Don't do it.

Grow up.

Moving British IT jobs offshore and expect people to fly with them after recent infrastructure disasters...? Reputational damage and public have no confidence in the company or brand. Classic example of putting corporate greedy cost saving instead of putting customer first which has back fired.

Fights to Belfast and Newcastle! This is a steal. I love Belfast. Best city in the world.

Of course the unions and socialists would suggest it must be entirely down to that. Every time anything goes wrong it must be down to outsourcing offshore. If there hasn't been outsourcing it's down to management and cost cutting. Tram driver falls asleep at the controls and its the managements fault because drivers are too scared to come forward.

Since you appear to have such knowledge in the area, perhaps you could clear something up. The issue occurred due to a UK contractor(s) switching the power off (isolating the equipment from both main and backup supply). Then that same UK contractor(s) failed to follow the power restoration procedure, causing massive corruption to the system. In the first instance how was that the fault of the Indians? In fact that was the fault of the staff they hadn't shifted to India!

Secondly, did the Indians design and build a brand new system last year? Or did they take on the management of the existing infra-stucture? I'm sure someone as knowledgeable as yourself would know a system of this scale is rarely delivered in a year? In other words it's likely the system was actually designed and built by the UK workers. And its the system design that was at fault not the support staff. Switching on power failure and recovering when power is restored are largely automated processes. Neither the original UK or replacement Indian support staff would have had any input in the issue. Their job would have been afterwards in recovering the system, which on a large complex DB is not a trivial task.

NB: Although its harsh to even blame the system architects given how the fault occurred. Isolating power and then putting it back on without following restart procedures is generally a BIG NO NO!

For all the other times, to me, a flight is a flight is a flight. I close my eyes and it's over. Flying is like taking the bus, from point A to B. I will take the cheapest bus that gets me there safely and on time, and that's the end of it. If you're talking about economy class, the only things they give you are a packet of peanuts, meal that usually tastes worse than a ready meal, and tiny drinks (which, if you aren't one of those awful seat-mates who gets drunk on miniatures and then acts like the flight is their private club, are worth pennies). I don't really see why it's worth paying any extra for that when you might as well bring on a meal deal.

Depends which countries. I booked BA Fly/Dive deal to Vienna. Called Avis first sharing my planned itinerary and they said it was ok to take the car outside Austria. Then I later discovered you needed to pay for extended insurance for some countries (mainly Eastern Europe and the newer accession states). Fortunately they agreed to refund the additional premium as it was their mistake.

Worth calling and telling them where you plan to take the car and making a note of who you spoke to and when. In my case the manager went back and listened to the call before agreeing to refund the additional charge. From memory it was £15/day for the countries not covered, capped to a maximum of £75.

I'm glad you posted this deal.I nearly posted it earlier in the week but didn't have time. A week ago, it was even cheaper. I paid £568 for two adults and three children going out on the 22nd July and coming back on the 5th August to Brindisi with Plus. That is £836.20 now. That said, when I booked BA, Easyjet wanted just under £1500 with baggage and tax and Ryanair wanted a staggering £1980! And the flight times were awful.

If you're going out as a couple, I recommend Hertz for car hire because if you join Hertz Gold Club you can add a second driver who lives at the same address as you for free. This saves about £100 on a fortnight booking. Pay by Mastercard using the Mastercard code and you can save another ten per cent, and there is cashback available too. We're paying about £325 after the cashback (which tracked) for a large automatic estate (Opel Insignia or equivalent) for the two weeks.

There are some very nice villas and hotels around. Plenty of availability.

It must've been awful for you, an adult so ignorant to anyone else to have had to listen to a baby in pain. Poor you. Genuinely.



​taking a baby on a 10+ hour flight is a completely selfish act by the parents. it's not as if the baby can appreciate different cultures. at least wait until they've become sentient beings. Failing that then a sedative would've sufficed or leaving it at home with it's grandparents. if anyone's ignorant then it's the parents of this brat or your vain attempts at trolling.

Who on here would be willing to pay a premium for an adults only flight?



To be honest many adults turn into children the minute they enter an airport, so i'm dubious of the value of such a proposition Moreover, given Ryan Air deals are so popular on here, I would surmise that many on here are prepared to tolerate a hell of a lot to save a few £'s

Little things that people do at airports really surprise and annoy me For example crowding around the luggage conveyer. Just step back a few feet for gods sake, its not going anywhere fast. Instead everyone stands right against the belt, meaning far fewer people can see if their luggage is coming and when it does you need to be a contortionist to be able to get it.

Who on here would be willing to pay a premium for an adults only flight?

Calm down everyone. I'm sure given the choice we'd all rather avoid being stuck for hours in a confined space with a child(ren) screaming at the top of their lungs.

I recall last year I was on a flight and shortly after take off a baby girl started crying. Unfortunately there was a bit of turbulence so the seat belt signs remained on for 45 mins, so no one could get up including the parents to try and calm her down. Worse still after 20 mins of this she set off all the other children in the flight. It was like a chorus of screams going down the cabin.

How I wished I was on a different flight Unfortunately that wasn't an option as she was my baby. My wife and I felt like dying of embarrassment.

Yes I see your point. Tutting is a terrible habit and the "grumpy middle aged men" do it all over the place (why ARE they so grumpy..!?!").

That said...

A frickingg chimp could run Heathrow better than currently. Why indeed aren't all the machines working? Why are there 5 people processing half of Asia in the mornings?

The situation is appalling and there's no one to blame (you're right about the purple jackets folk - it's not their fault). Take it or leave it. Worse though in USA and Australia.

Solution? £5 express passport fee to pay for more staff in a fast track. Good idea?

(Personally I think it sucks. Like speedy boarding or the queue-jumping surcharge at Thorpe Park; yuk)

On this route though, the lockers are pretty narrow so I would not rely on full-size hand luggage getting on board. That said, even if they check it into the hold, they can surely not then charge you for that privilege?


I often used to fly BA to Istanbul as my family worked/lived there,so I had a large soft rucksack stuffed with pork sausages/bacon etc which weighed at least 20kgs,But I now realise it was never queried due to this 23kg limit,I also paid for a extra hold bag approx £30 which now will cost me £65 if I need an extra one.

One question I would add is why were all the electronic gates not open? It only takes one passport bod to look after them all. That is the reason they were installed in the first place!

So gave up caring for next year, I wouldn't do this if they were GCSE years etc...)



That's a great direct price then. I thought we'd booked ours for next Easter, but turns out we haven't - got it on the list for tonight's nightshift - toss up between £450 for London or £300 from Dusseldorf, and whether to play by the rules or stick 2 fingers up to it. Think we'll probably take 2 days off before and get a full fortnight away with a couple of days to sleep it off when we get back. Have fun!!

Ha! That's not bad, what dates have you got there? We've been looking at the Virgin flights for £400-450ish depending on the dates via ATL or DTW, but that's on school hol dates for us (8-21st Apr), or considering taking the kids out a day early and bagging the £312 flights from Dusseldorf-Miami. We're doing the Miami drive in July - managed to get the flights with BA for £350 this summer with a bit of faffing around with the departure airports.

I'm struggling a bit with our 12yo on a lot of flight sites - they all seem to be charging the adult price for him, even though APD is no longer applicable. I rung traveltrolley and flysharp to ask them about it and they didn't have a clue what I was talking about, did you have to pay it for your two?

Randomly we're actually going out next Easter for mine and my Wife's 40th (hers whilst we're there)

Just got some Iberia express flights to Madrid next Easter for £62 return standard class, so i expect a business class upgrade might be around 70ish each way with Iberia?

Also all flights are actually operated by IBERIA and not BA.



Not a bad thing. Better looking air hostesses. (_;)

Shame would have been a good spot. If you do the search using Economy, there are flights at £36 e/w which is still a good fare. Heat from me.
