Last minute - Thomson - MAN-JSI this Fri!

Just checked Thomson's flight price out of Manchester to Skiathos on Friday (13th), back on 20th.....

Anyone who could just pack their bags and go, it's showing at £189 return !!!

Yes, Ken, that truly is a bargain. I am a big fan of T/Advisor but I wonder why they send out some absurd messages. On the 4th of this month they sent me a message saying best price for Skiathos £819 !! Yesterday, another one, big price reduction, £718 !!!! Really, makes me think someone has a lack of intelligence unless a robot is scouring around and such things are automatically sent.

Hi Pinkygirl,

Yeah...you're right...it's spurious to say the least! Best way is to do an actual search........

Anyway, must be last seat on that Thomson now...as they are only taking a single passenger input to show the flight available....now (as of 14.15 Thursday) .......£158.98 return !!!! Get in!!!

[....just can't go!..can't excuse myself for a week!....I think someone would notice me missing!..boo hoo!!!]

Haha! Jules!

Get it bought....the outgoing flight is a 'throw away', you don't need it! Extend for a week for £159!

It's still showing available, as at 15.09 UK time (17.09 your time), one seat, returning 20th Sept!

PS: Here's the link......... …thomson.co.uk/thomson/en-GB/booking/select…

Haha! I know Jules....it seems like a good idea, BUT!!!

Anyway, as promised, I'll be tracking that Thomson down tomorrow morning for your return......plus you could check MAN departures online at about 10-to-10.30am your time (as Steve advised) to check for it being on its way. I'll post on Small Planet Airlines thread tomorrow.

Well.......it's been sold!..........that last cheap Thomson ticket.

Does that mean there'll be someone else 'single in Skiathos' on Friday?! Jules? Or did a couple decide to take the Mother-in-Law at the last minute?!!!

We'll probably never know!
