Sorry to hear of your problems. At least your son will be taken care of as the CAA are well prepared and are operating repatriation flights practically identical to the originals. Getting your money back for flights ex UK that will not operate now depends how you originally paid. There is some excellent advice on Martin Lewis' Money Saving Expert website here :

So, I suppose this leaves the field open for Ryanair, Easyjet & J2com to fight over the remaining short-haul business......
Or, is it a case of last-airline-standing in current economic times? :tea:
