2260 was flights and travel only!!! We will have to change the return flight date so i suppose that'll cost us more too...we paid the 399 on top of the 2260....What a joke.....

how many of ye are going? if it is 2260 each its mental money!! They do what they want, i thought 100 to change a flight was crazy but when i had to, 359 was what i got, i had rang to get them changed and was told the date i wanted wasnt available, so that must have been a free move, i got 24 which was 300 and when i rang back to book it, guess what it just happen to be gone! who are they kidding, im so tired of forking out all this money that i dont have on something that still hasnt materialised!! :-( 8-12 weeks who are they kidding!!

Wanna hear something funny? I change my flights at a cost of €80, from a 9.50a.m. Today to the24th of this month cause there was no sign of the visa, 1 a.m. This morning then, visa comes through, happy to get it, but have to say, the fun is completely taken out of it, here's my timescale so far then, after 2 flight changes and a nearly 13 week process:

9th Jan-posted (regular mail)
20th Feb-notice of receipt e-mail receipt
8th march-payment request
9th march-payment sent
28th march- requesting further payment email received
28th march-emailed the SP reference number
29th march-received payment confirmation
14th april-received loi email


Was it just me or did anyone else's loi have no information on it about them? Its just a generic form with nothing relating to me on it?
