Our children were supposed to be joining us for Christmas in Madeira, but on reaching Gatwick airport were told that all flights were cancelled because of strong winds at Madeira airport. News to us, because although it was a bit breezy in the morning, everything was still by late afternoon. And EVERY flight run by EVERY airline except Easyjet took off and landed as normal.
So why did Easyjet cancel these flights? And why did they pretend that there were problems with the weather when there weren't? To put it mildly, it doesn't inspire confidence in Easyjet's competence. I certainly won't be rushing to use them again!
