Apparently the French have decided that France is closed and no one can fly through their air space. Very unsporting of them.
My flight was cancelled and the ensuing debacle of having to come sadly back through immigration, unused boarding pass in hand, security which meant I couldn’t leave the airport until all luggage was returned and everything else in general meant it was a fairly frustrating and pointless waste of time.
Basically I went to Gatwick airport for the afternoon.
I’m booked on another flight tomorrow afternoon but to be honest, I can’t really see the point of trying. The dispute is scheduled to go on until at least Sunday.
It would seem I’m not going to Florence.
