Nightmare Airport Parking Fees for Some Stranded Fliers

April 27, 2010 | Posted in: Airline News,Europe,News

airport parking fees stranded fliers

We’re hearing a lot about scary airport parking fees awaiting travelers on their return from wherever they were stranded when that Icelandic volcano began spewing The Ash That Shut Down Europe.

However, on the whole the news is pretty good on that front – for example, the gentleman I wrote about – the Brit stranded in Vegas – finally got back home this past weekend (on SAS – paid for out of his pocket) – but his extra parking fees in London were waived.

 His biggest problem, according to his latest email to us, is his airline: “Only Virgin Atlantic let us down and or tried to milk extra cash out of us. Let’s see how forthcoming they are at picking up our hotel receipts!”

Are you listening, Sir Richard?

    When we returned to Heathrow having been delayed for 6 nights in Toronto, we were told we could not collect our car unless we drew out £10 per night from the cash machine.

    Lyn, Andy –

    Now that is adding insult to injury. But for what it’s worth, I’m glad you finally got home.

    And thanks for writing.
    Rick
