The last few times I have travelled home from Alicante we have ended up playing departure gate hokey cokey - not by choice but because we have been shunted from one DG to the next, then to another and then back again. Last time, I think they swapped us 4 times. This has always been with Easyjet. Have they managed to stop this happening? You can imagine the mood it puts those in who have carefully got to the gate early. Although, last time it was such a farce that passengers actually saw the funny side of it with each other.
