    just give them a bell beforehand and let them know you're coming along with the rifles...

    0871 244 2366 (calls cost 10p per minute; calls from mobiles and other networks may cost more)

    however, don't rush, the french have gone on strike and the recording at the end is stating a high volume of calls as a result... so perhaps call when the dust has settled on the weekend.

    Easyjet are gonna get some shock, everyone arriving with bloody rifles! Heathrow airport is the same around Bisley time every year, they soon get into the swing of it after the first dozen go through!

    Well i've done T5 and Standstead, and the same trick worked twice... get there early, rock up to the Easyjet customer service desk, usually just in the same place as the booking in desks, mention firearms, a few of them, lots of papework, and it's like the parting of the red sea... normally escorted to your very own desk opened up especially for you. Couldn't hide my grin when they did it for just me as all the 1st class and expediated booking in plebs had to wait in line :D

    Tried calling numerous times ? Can never get through ?

    Is this really a neccessary ? Surely as we are booked in on the flight with sporting fire arms they know we a coming ?

    I personally think it isn't, but it says it is... but then if they get the hump, you can always say you couldn't get through... and at 10p a minute, they can't expect people to hang on all day...

    Just checked and booked in

    Just phoned Easyjet on the number Robf provided and it is all sorted for launch.

    Just have to make sure I have eveything now ready to go.

    Planning is hard work fair play.....
