How successful were you?
Dues to the grounding of the Eagle Air fleet, I'm stranded in Wellington and cannot get back to Timaru. There is a flight today and tomorrow, with many spare seats, but they will not let me catch earlier flight unless I pay them $387 on top of what I have already paid for my one way ticket... I'm happy to cut my holiday short and leave early... but If I am any later than my flight time, it will cost me my job.
I'm thinking my only option may be to spend the next 2 days sitting at the airport hoping to get a flight Wellington to Christchurch... but wonder how successful I will be with their standby fares?
