Booking Flights from Gatwick problems for next summer ?
« on: November 28, 2016, 11:35:19 am »
Hi,
Is anyone else having problems getting day flights from Gatwick for next May? The ONLY flights I can find (even using skyscanner) is for a return flight that is a late flight and  that lands at 01.10(+1), Hubby hates these flights and for yrs now have opted for a late morning/early afternoon departure that lands about 6pm in the UK

Also finding only 2 options for flights out of Gatwick (easyjet 05.45 and Thomson at 7am) Don't mind these but it seems weird that there are so few options

Anyone else having this problem, or is it just me?

We like to leave on a Weds and return 10 nights later on a Saturday, Norwegian seem to only offer Saturday flights so there no good either

Help...need to re-book soon as only returned last week and already having withdrawal symptoms lol

We usually have a similar problem - need to arrive back in Gatwick at a reasonable time in order to get train connections for onward travel.  We have found EasyJet can usually supply good timings.

Go out with easyjet or TC and back on Sat with Norwegian. Usually gets in about 11.15pm.

Or try Vueling they fly Fri or Sun and arrive about 8pm, but are cr*p airline!! Or come back into LHR with Iberia (change Madrid).

Vueling have Cybermonday 50% off for 2 flights!
