For once I can't be cynical

Nice to see EasyJet, probably the most sympathetic of the low cost airlines, come to the rescue of SkyEurope passengers.

Sir Stelios’s team has offered passengers stranded by the failure of SkyEurope a ‘return home’ fee of just euro 40 on overlapping routes, which include: London – Prague – London, London – Vienna – London and Milan – Prague – Milan.

The offer is available until 23.59 (pedants) next Tuesday and to claim, passengers need to call 0870 6 000 000 (from UK) or 899 676 789 (from Italy) and quote their original reference number.

When the press release came into my inbox, the euro 40 price had an asterisk next to it and my original thought was that there would be a host of T&Cs attached to it such as having to fly at certain times or not including taxes… but the footnote simply said: ‘Includes all taxes and charges’.

So for once, I can’t be cynical about an offer and unless proved otherwise by reader experiences telling me differently, I have to say: Well done EasyJet.
