Just wondering if anyone else has been affected by the XL airline collapse - we lost our flights to Dalaman & may get refunded, but if its flights only its a grey area. However, they say if you paid by debit card which has a Visa logo on, there is hope of a refund on flights.
However, not to be beaten, we've re-booked with Easyjet at a horrendous cost of £800 (for 2 returns from Gatwick) This is double what we originally paid.
I know fuel increases have affected the airlines, but I'm sure some of them are cashing in on people's loss by hiking up the prices excessively, & I think its pretty despicable. Its a shame there dont seem to be Government controls on these prices.
I feel really sorry for people who cannot now go on holiday & hope it doesn't affect local businesses in Turkey too much.
I would be interested to hear views on this, & hear from anyone who has lost out due to the XL collapse.
Regards to all,
