Kef's missing tourists

Holiday shock: 'We were stopped from boarding our Greece flight'

"After months in lockdown we've been so looking forward to a holiday," says Michelle Last. It's a longing shared by millions of Britons.

But when Michelle and her two young children turned up at the Gatwick Airport boarding gate last weekend for a flight to Greece she was not allowed on the flight.

"It's such a shock. EasyJet didn't tell us why a first. We were just asked to step aside," Michelle said. "There was another couple who also couldn't get on."

And it seems they are not alone in being refused a flight to Greece at the last minute. On Wednesday, the BBC was told of families not being allowed aboard an early morning EasyJet flight to Kefalonia.

She didn't complete the PLF correctly.

A bit more on that story from the Guardian:

Quote
Karoki Lewis and his family were forbidden to board their easyJet flight to Kefalonia because he had not included the names of his two young children on the form.

“It appears to be impossible to add more than two passengers on the form; many other families have been affected because they only managed to enter the parents’ details,” he said.

“I pointed out that small children would obviously be with their parents throughout their holiday and therefore would be easily contactable for any Covid-19 tracing but I was told that even if we were allowed on the flight, the Greek authorities would send us straight home.”
