    In what currency? See if you can join the dots. I've given you a good clue.

    Same as with any cancellation. Luggage is taken off the flight (if loaded), or retrieved from the baggage system - then you're guided through the airport to baggage pickup, and exit via customs. I can't recall if you have to go through immigration again.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    If they're still at the hotel then hopefully a deal can be done where they get cheap accommodation, seeing as the next batch of TC holidaymakers aren't going to be arriving at the hotel, so the rooms may be available and the hotel will be looking to recoup what it can before the aggro of claiming compo from ATOL etc.
    You can't go through Security without a boarding pass, and you won't be checked in unless there's an actual flight. So those stranded at airports are in a check-in waiting area.

    Nearest I've experience to this is last year when 'the beast from the East' meant my flight was delayed after I'd gone through check-in and security. It wasn't certain the flights would depart as many of the UK airports were closed or struggling, so we sat around for hours waiting for updates. Fortunately our flight went ahead eventually as the airports got on top of the problem and re-opened the runways.

    So I'm sure there would have been some already checked-in expecting a TC flight that never arrived or departed (how much warning did the airports get that the scheduled/charter flights weren't arriving or to ground planes ready to start boarding?) and stranded at the airport until someone assisted them with temporary accommodation or an alternative flight.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Not at all surprised.

    And the German government has got a pile of steaming tulipe on its hands - I doubt it will see its money anytime soon.

    Just to be pedantic, yes you can otherwise who would man those overpriced shops or clean the toilets?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Why? If you're talking about Condor and the bailout from the German and Hessen governments then they will see their money. The only reason they gave the bridging loan was because Condor is actually in the black and business is quite good for them...

    Staff go through a different door to passengers. I'm sure you either knew that, or suspected it. So now you do know. It used to be far easier for the staff than it is now. I've been airside just by keying in a door code ffs. I hope you all take comfort in knowing that was such a long time ago...
