I lifted the quote below from another forum.Then I thought I would get some expert advice from those who are up to speed o the current situation.The OP rambles a bit,and goes off piste,but perhaps someone can comment.If you have nothing better to do,that is.Ta. Quote; A staff member has become an auntie for the first time - hooray! She's hoping to visit the cute-faced addition to her family in Germany, where her brother is stationed. This led to a conversation on the cost of flights. I shouldn't have been surprised, of course, but actually I was. Like bumping up the cost of fares to coincide with children's school holidays, apparently our chums in the aviation industry have sussed out the leave dates and charge extortionate rates. It means our armed forces personnel are charged upwards of Â£300 just to come home and visit their family. I just wonder what you think about this practice? A fair enough commercial decision based on supply and demand, or one price fits all and should stay the same for everyone? Or do you perhaps feel that these companies our ripping off the people who are prepared to lay down their lives for us and this charging policy is beneath contempt?
