  • lets say you have family in Germany, USA.
    what happens when an older family member is in hospital or ill and you have a rucksack and ready to go?


    I want to fly out in a couple days with no baggage so where do I start? I don't have all day to sit around an airport with this stupid 4 hr to 12 hr delay I could willingly strangle the person who thought up that scheme? its makes no common sense.


    Apparently BA have a Basic deal (no luggage) but can I find it? NO


    any advice? just want to get to FRA asap.
    thank you very much

    Confused - Germany, USA?

    I want to fly out in a couple days with no baggage so where do I start? I don't have all day to sit around an airport with this stupid 4 hr to 12 hr delay I could willingly strangle the person who thought up that scheme? its makes no common sense.
    What scheme are you referring to?

    BA do not operate direct to FRA from MAN. You will find the 'Basic' fares if you look at the flights individually e.g. MAN-LHR and LHR-FRA

    any advice? just want to get to FRA asap.
    thank you very much
    Lufthansa operate 4 direct flights most days from MAN-FRA, their 'Light' fare is hand luggage only
    You can book on the Lufthansa website

    Hi, booked flights from Treviso to Leeds Bradford in October to fly 18/07 but they have changed the flight time from 15.35 to 11.00 and they are offering to refund me, the flights are now 75 euros cheaper, would I be justified in cancelling them and rebooking at the cheaper rate, I also booked transfers with them and they have changed the transfer company and I'm not sure if the transfer is still valid.
    Titch :)

    Yes. The refund might be slow coming through but will arrive. Don't hold fire on rebooking.

    No idea.

    I just booked a flight from Edinburgh to Billund Denmark and paid 145 pounds via skyscanner uk.
    I now discover the same flight is 35 pound cheaper if using skyscannerdansk and paying in danish krone. I have no problem paying in Krone since I have a debit card with zero conversation or transaction fees. One thing that did worry me was that the ticket might be printed in Danish - would that be a problem for UK airport staff . Does anyone have any experience or advice about buying flights this way.??
