Easyjet have released their flights for Spring 2019 today. I priced up for our intended May 2019 visit. The Saturday flights from Manchester came out at £391.49 per person before any extras (seat choice, hold luggage) were added on! Wowser!!

We have travelled on that flight in previous years and not paid anywhere near that. I thought E-J were supposed to be cheap when released and cost more nearer to date of travel?

We're going to have to re-think our dates and consider alternative options.

I am still trying to work out their new cabin baggage policy. Brain hurts.
Have you checked Ryanair?

I have a (possibly irrational) aversion to Ryanair.  I've never flown with them.  I tend to blame them for the 'almost everything about the flight is an optional extra you have to pay for if you want it' policy most airlines seem to have adopted now.   As our local airport is Manchester we usually have a choice of carriers on the routes we're interested in and can avoid Ryanair.

The cost of the Friday flight with EJ is less than 50% of the Saturday flight but it's a late afternoon take off and, with the time difference, a 22.45 landing at Corfu.  We have used the Friday fight a few times before but as we get older we're finding that getting up early suits us more than staying up late.

We will look at all the options, including package holidays.  That long weekend package with Jet2 in June worked well for us and their luggage allowance is generous.

Check again in a few days as after the initial rush with everyone booking the prices may well drop.

Thanks Elliemay.

We're about to go away so it will have to wait until we are home again.
