Hi, I have been stuck in scotland after my return flight on the 18th was cancelled.  I have booked a flight with easyjet for 31st. Is there any news over there about whether the authorities will extend the shutdown after the 29th. Its hopeless here try to get news. Even the spanish embassy has not answered the many phone calls weve made. Any help please?

Andy

Yes that's an idea. Would need to get the french to let us through though, but I will look into it. Thanks again Kevin.

Trains can get through, but I know what you mean about the French.

Probably true. But it’s hard here and friends and family are there and our home is empty

You could use the train option. More expensive but it would get you home. Good luck.
