We flew Glasgow to Alicante today, arriving about an hour late after we were decanted from the plane as it suffered a fuel leak on pulling back from the stand. Panic? What panic? We were back on in an hour and on our way soon after.
This was our first flight with Easyjet Plus status, secured by paying £3.00 for row 5 seats. This allowed us to use the Plus bag drop off – a big plus when travelling with two biggish cardboard bike boxes. We also got to speedy board, but this just filled me with guilt!
Both bikes and our panniers in their Chinese shopping bag travelled safely to Alicante. It took about an hour for me to reassemble the two bikes. All went smoothly.
We have booked into a hostal in El Atet, about 15 minutes from the airport, except we got lost and took about an hour. However it was a pleasure to ride in 18 plus degrees and lovely bright light.
Tomorrow we head off down the coast. Can’t wait!
