If we assume that current routes will stay, then Stansted (Ryanair) and Southampton (Flybe) will remain convenient for people able to reach those airports within, let's say for the sake of argument, 2 - 2.5 hours - I'm assuming by road. For those travelling from the north (Leeds, Hull, Manchester - ...

That's what we've been considering. But have you compared the cost of car-hire in Spain with the cost for the same period from Carcassonne? We found a BIG difference - France seems to be MUCH more expensive.

I do wish people wouldn't mis-read posts on this forum. I wasn't suggesting that Ryanair should have landed, or tried to take off, in bad weather, nor was I blaming them for not doing so.

Just in case anyone gets the impression that all this signifies a heightened degree of customer care by Ryanair...on Saturday 26th October (note the day), the incoming Ryanair flight to Perpignan was diverted because of adverse weather (high winds) to Montpellier airport.

All very well, but the current mess regarding flights, and the com...
