What are Brits doing in Europe in the first place?  Didn't we settle this once and for all?

An alternative connecting flight to get from Orly to London today costs £185, however it is a 13-hour journey.

Isn't this just basic capitalism though? Supply and demand and all that? And should people who choose to travel during a pandemic not face consequences for their choices?

groverpm: Who the hell thinks British Airways is French?


No-one, it's a stock image. British Airways isn't mentioned once in the article.

I'm a Brit, I think this is fine.

By all means go on holiday abroad at the moment if you want to, but you are a complete moron if you do so and don't consider the very real and obvious chance that something pandemic-related will arise to cause you massive problems while you are away.

You were, perhaps unlucky, but this is not a farking meteor strike, you knew full well that the government and the virus has been screwing things up in unexpected ways for months and you took the gamble that you wouldn't get bitten.

1.  An order of magnitude is 10 times.  This is 2.6.
2.  It's for a plane departing tomorrow. Duh.
3.  British Airways is not a French travel company.
