Is anybody flying from Manchester to Hungary on the 30/09/10 for this?
Not now they know you are
Cheers PeteI'm just asking as I was told you could not fly from Man.to Budapest direct but I can get flights on the 30 th out for £9.99 and return on the 4 th for £26 when taxes and other bits added it comes to £86 all in.
Can't fault it
They will aslo charge around £25 each way just for the gun! I am paying 40euro each way from Dublin for my gun on top of my flights
BA want £50 each way...
Whats the difference in ski's and a gun case? They are stored in the same place i.e. the hold. Its 30euro for skis and other sporting equipment, but charge extra for firearms, they also have the cheek to limit it to 20kg. A peli case and rifle would be touching this, if not over!
cant shoot ft with skis
20 kg That will be cutting it fine best leave your scope at home conor
Steve, been looking into flights also ,my nearest airport is Humberside only 3 miles away they fly to Budapest via Skipol & it is roughly £290 ish return + £50 each way for sporting goods to max 22kg ?
There are some cheaper flights out there but aren't they loaded with hidden extras i.e. limited baggage weight , tax , if you want a seat etc ????
I rarely fly so mine field for me
Living the Dream
DIRECT flights are best, avoid a change over, god knows what the baggage handlers get up to with the rifle cases!
Have had a look on the small print and it says no firearms,The dommie is under 12 ftlbs so technically not a firearmBesides it would do more damage to them if it fell on them in the Peli caseDon't really want to change flights Scott,but was wondering if anyone was going to fly from Manchester so we could share a hire car to get to the shoot.
Anyone going over from Heathrow way? Willing to car/room share (as long as you don't snore )
Just done some more digging...
Easyjet from Gatwick £52 return + £37 for the gun return.
Looks like that will be my prefered route.
They also fly from Luton for a similar amount.
Laszlo has said that their bank decided to charge 10 EUR for foreign bank transfers, so they are moving accounts to a bank that doesn't. Once that's complete, info on payment will be sent out.
I'm glad you said that i nearly booked my flights. also i found car hire, £204 for Focus estate. i'll keep looking.
Booked in... Easyjet

If you can get to mine you can come up in mine... room for 3. Neil is coming up, so perhaps you can get to his and then get to mine... just an idea
