Hi Jock, we have booked with aegeanflights.com for the last three years, sometimes had flight changes on a particular day as they have, for e.g this year used Sky Airlines on the outbound flight and instead of flying early morning we had to fly mid afternoon. No serious delays, but overall have always managed to get there, the most delay we have had is 2 hours.

Hi Jock,
As you know we have suffered the same fate at the hands of Goldtrail, as have no doubt lots of other people. It fills me with dread as to who will be the next Tour Operater/Airline to go bust, from what I hear a lot are close to been in a similar situation to that of Goldtrail. The Ash cloud crisis had a big impact across the travel industry wth a lot of smaller operations really suffering (and quite a few big one's too). I am really tempted to book direct with a large Airline from now on, the extra pounds have got to be worth trying to minimize this kind of grief. These companies are not immune but there is lesser of a chance the 'Goldtrail Fiasco' happening with them.

Re: goldtrail flight cancelled

We often use Aegean and no problem, mind you hope this is not the kiss of death, not long ago I posted on here to recommend cracking prices for Goldtrail and look what happened not long after.

Re: goldtrail flight cancelled

We had flights booked with Goldtrail for September but we have now rebooked with
Easyjet from Liverpool, better flight times and only 30.00 more than we paid with
Goldtrail.

We booked with goldtrail (Claim is lodged) then rebooked with easyjet 400 increase in flight costs for 6 of us. Easyjet price today is 1100 more than 2 weeks ago.
Price now compared to goldtrail price is double.

We fly in the morning :-)

Re: goldtrail flight cancelled

Jock,

Aegean flights and H4u are of the same company who fly out from Newcastle, we have booked with both in the past and had no problems, but aegean always seems to be dearer for some reason esp the extras like luggage. you could try flythomascook sometimes with these you can book single flights and sometimes they work out cheaper.

We got in quick and rebooked the day after Goldtrail went bust but your right prices have gone up but not only Easyjet all airlines have put up prices.

Re: goldtrail flight cancelled

We sell H4U & Aegean flights they seem a well funded Tour Operator who mainly use Onur (with strong Turkish connections).
They have added a number of extra flights in the last few days to help GoldTrail passengers. (Like all operators the early booking attracts better prices.)
