As soon as I woke up (having had little sleep playing AC games all night!) I went and started calling airlines.
As the Condor flight wasnt going to leave till monday and there is a weight restriction we were not even sure we could get off the island, we try to find an alternative flight out and who would accept our tickets - we have employee tickets.
Finally managed to get hold of BA - told the guy the whole story - he said of course the flight is full but be at the airport and we can see what we can do. So my colleague is not so happy - he has to cancel his nice dinner as we need to be at the airport at 6.
Well.... when we got to the airport its a mess - people everywhere - trying to find someone from BA - saw one guy who approached us and said "ohhh you must be the condor staff" - good - well at least someone knows us - he says we are on the list - my colleague is nervous - and wants me to keep asking - but I can see they know we are here - so I am more relaxed.
Around 7.15 the BA staff come across and told us to pay the departure fee and they got us two seats - and we are lucky - so we keep our mouths shut and enjoy the fact we will leave! Non smoking flight - so my colleague is really grumpy - 12 hrs without a smoke :-)
what a great end to the funniest holiday!
