Scarlet Lady (UK sailing) - August 20th 2021

Recommended Posts

Oh, I changed my booking to the 6th August as I thought there would be more of a fanfare on that sailing and hopefully considered the maiden!


By the way, on the other thread someone had posted they thought:-


£998 with $200 sailor loot



was too much too pay.  Its Virgin Voyages for goodness sake!!!

Good morning all. Just a bit of info if anyone needs to fly to Southampton en-route to Portsmouth in light of the demise of Flybe.


I was researching for flights from Manchester and found Loganair were now operating the route. However, the flights are operated by Blue Islands.


Now, many may have heard of Loganair over Blue Islands and would be tempted to book with them. However, booking direct with Blue Islands not only saved us £50, but the baggage allowance with Blue Islands is greater than with Loganair (even though you are on a Blue Islands aircraft). Blue Islands cheapest fare gives 23kgs checked baggage and 10kgs cabin baggage. Loganair only gives 15kgs checked baggage and 6kgs cabin baggage.

Well we're in a bit of a quandary. Blue Island have now cancelled our flights to/from Southampton. Looks like the train to Portsmouth!
