$A450,000 for Sydney to London

Apr 22nd, 2010 | By

Now that airspace is open again, the great return home begins. With a cruise ship in Bilbao, the Navy mixing returning troops from Afghanistan with holidaymakers and ferries, Eurostar and hire cars doing exceptional business, there are stories about how much people are spending.
According to today’s Sydney Morning Herald in Australia, some people are looking to hire a jet for $A450,000 (say £270,000) to fly home from Australia to the UK. Except as you read the story, the truth is that enquiries have been made but the company can’t point to any firm orders. It looks like a good headline to capture people’s attention so maybe that is all it is.
But some people have spent hundreds if not thousands on trying to return to their homes.
