But, unfortunately for them, we’re back from our holiday around the world and chomping at the bit to get back in the groove!
So what have we missed?
Ryanair being taken to court over unpaid ash cloud compensation
It seems that a test case involving Ryanair has been heard in a European court, the outcome of which could change the rules regarding compensation when an airline cancels a flight.
A passenger made a compensation claim against Ryanair in the wake of the volcanic ash cloud disruption, when her flight from Faro, Portugal was cancelled and she became stranded for nine days.
According to the Irish Examiner, the airline refused to pay the €1,129 (£945) claim for expenses incurred and Denise McDonagh was forced to go to the county court.
Families flying with Ryanair this summer will face soaring luggage charges
A family of four each with average size suitcases will have to pay £320 just to put them in the hold as the airline cashes in on peak season with a hike of up to 33 per cent on its baggage tariff.
Ryanair’s charge of £80 for a 20kg case is more than double summer holiday increases brought in by other budget carriers.
Travelsupermarket.com spokesman Bob Atkinson said: “Ryanair clearly hopes to profit from summer holidaymakers while leaving low season prices as they are.
“This will affect families in particular. And woe betide if you forget to book that bag in online.
“It’ll cost you £100.” Families of four travelling on Flybe, easyJet, BMI, Thomson, Jet2 and Monarch will face luggage charges from £103 to £151.
