Currently getting delayed in the IOM airport, but a pint is £5.65 so it's not a bad place to wait.

Lovely place and some great pubs and restaurants about - should be a great trip with the Port next month

Was approx. 2 hours in the end back to Liverpool. Felt back for those waiting on the 14.00 GTW flight which was 4h30m late

No idea how thats happened. I did select 'business class' on easyJet's website. I am expecting Stelios to personally welcome me onto the aircraft and hand me a can of Birra Moretti at 6:30am.

Only just noticed this post.
A couple of useful tips if passing through the area....
1 - Well worth picking up some cheese as you pass through Gloucester & Cheddar. 2 - The port of Bristol isn't the wonderful beverage it sounds like. 3 - Bath water tastes bloody awful, so bring some tinnies. 4 = If you are planning to enter the water at Weston Super Mare, allow at least an hour for walking to the sea if the tide is out and remember, SFC players will not be there to rescue you from the mud.

Have a safe trip and good time.
