ITV1 Programme on Budget Airlines

Post by stevestrac on Fri 28 May 2010 - 21:34

I thought I would just like to mention that (preliminary) on the 1st July 2010, ITV1 in the UK, will be broadcasting a programme on Budget Airlines in their "Tonight" Series of programmes (Thursdays at 1930 - UK Time).

How do I know???? You might just see me being interviewed on there

After spending an afternoon with a camera crew and supplying them with pictures of me in far flung FR destinations, it may just happen!

Their idea for the programme was.......... "Have you managed to fly for £10?" I emailed and said that was rather expensive, as I have flown for 1p many a time.

After a few emails and phone conversations, off I went to be interviewed.

I will update here, when I get a confirmed date, but they given me a preliminary date of the 1st July at the moment.

So there you go everyone, if you can manage to see it on the 1st of July. There should also be an interview with MOL, as the crew were heading off to see him the Monday after I was interviewed.

I've not seen it myself, however, I've been told I will be getting a DVD through of the show. If I get it before the show airs, I will give you some info on it.

Ha ha ha............. sadly I'm not that imaginative! I thought MOL had some good points in this programme RE the few hundred quid flights by BA and everything is free, whereas FR charge for seat and then everything else on top, but I DO WANT one of them waistcoat thingys! Where's that Producers phone number...............
