Saga Airlines Manchester to Bodrum

Has anyone flown with Saga Airlines (code SGX)? We got back from Yalikavak less than 2 days ago and booked last night to go back again in mid May. Flight cost and times looked good. The confirmation invoice has just come through and it appears that the flight time is 5 hours and 35 minutes !!!! They must have very slow planes or we are going via somewhere else. The booking company say it is a direct flight. Can anyone shed any light on this. 4 hours is enough for us on a flight but 5 hours and 35 minutes will be a nightmare.
Thanks

Re: Saga Airlines Manchester to Bodrum

I think Pete is right is will be close to 6 hours going and 2 hours coming back because they are local times.

We dont think so as the flight is leaving Manchester at 08.15. We have flown before over the change to/from BST but because of the time of the flight this is definately not the case here.

But the take off and landing times will be local times anyway.

Re: Saga Airlines Manchester to Bodrum

Leaving Manchester at 08.15 and arriving in Bodrum at 15.50 is 7 hours and 35 minutes, allowing for the time difference makes it 5 hours and 35 minutes. Dont know why it appears to be taking an extra 1 hour 15 minutes ish.

Re: Saga Airlines Manchester to Bodrum

Maybe it is a mistake have you tried phoning them?

Re: Saga Airlines Manchester to Bodrum

Mystery solved ! Despite several phone calls and being assured that it was a direct flight they have now decided that it is going via Gatwick to pick up more passengers. Despite it being their error, not having sold it as an indirect flight, they say it is unlikely we can get out of the booking without being charged. So.... give the 17 year old daughter two of her travel pills (that act as sleeping pills) and hope she doesn't notice that we are touching down and taking off again :-)

Thanks to you all for your input :-)
