this is not a funny story - even though at first might appear that way .

Airline sorry for false legs fee

An airline has apologised for charging an amputee who wanted to take a spare pair of prosthetic legs on holiday an additional £10 each way.

Mick Skee, 47, of Wardley, Gateshead, lost both legs after contracting meningitis two years ago.

He wanted to take a spare pair of false limbs on his holiday to Majorca next May but Jet2 told him he would have to pay a surcharge.

The airline has now refunded the money, and said it had changed its guidelines.

@hamburger,
Let's remember not to book through Jet2. They've got some stoopid policies going on there.

Oh sure, it's not a political thread (for once) - and there is no humour? Sad

Where's the fun....the excitment? Do we need to have another religious funny hat thread to amuse us, H?
