    Things are looking very bad, we have spoken to all reps at airport and there is wating lists for prople wanting flights, its the week before kids go back and 3 flights have been pulled off, so you could say we haven't got a hope in hell, i have even tried finding a flight for me to go over to zante to fetch my son back to chania but nothing

    We need to fly from chania airport on tuesday 26th as they only fly to england on a tuesday, or from heraklion airport any day next week . 1 adult, 1 child aged 14

    I know it's probably not much use but can you get a boat back, if needed?

    Thats probably not as silly as it first sounded!:thumbsup:

    Have you tried getting ANY flight out to a larger hub that you could get a forward flight from? I did have a peek, but the engines I used dont even have that airport as an available option!

    Any more fighting and bickering in this thread from ANYONE and i will start handing out infractions.

    Good luck finding filght sassie x

    if you need to got home you should take the jet2 flight - expensive but really the only option if you have to get home.
    otherwise just turn up at the airport and pray for a no show

    :friends: awww! take care look forward to seeing you back on here soon :thumbsup:

    Hi there is one with Lufthansa that goes from Heraklion via Athens and munich into manchester takes 7hours 5 mins....but...its £870 for the both of you :-(

    Could you get a cheap internal flight to Athens?? Then there is a flight into Birmingham which is about £767 for the both of you. Hope you get sorted. Fingers crossed :-)

    No thats isnt an option



    Sassie, a boat back from Crete to the UK wasnt an option, but I was thinking more about a boat from Crete to Athens as a possability. I would imagine from Athens, you would have numerous direct flights.

    Just putting an idea into the melting pot! Its worth investigating I would think?

    I appreciate from your comments, that messing around with non direct flights was an issue, but maybe this would be less stressful?

    guv, got my friend onto the boat to athens options, trouble is with connecting flights is they keep pulling flights off at the mo, so have too be carefl, local airport only fly to uk on a tuesday but have a 150 people waiting list for this tuesday, heraklion airport is a 3 hour drive so travelling there every day is not an option due to a fual stike on here, it just gets better - lol

    Good luck Sassie, the Jet2 one does look the best as its not long delays etc but deffo the price is a bit high, but if you can afford it, might as well go for it and try relax till you have to go Tuesday night, i really hope you get home soon and recover quickly.

    Cool. OK. As I suggested, it was just a metling pot idea and option to look at.

    I may have missed the mention (and haven't looked on the news) but what is the problem over there? Is it a fuel strike as youve just said above? (I did look on the BBC site, but nothing there ATM!)
