We're doing the same LGW out and back to LHR, not ideal but we'll manage and already bashing out ideas.

We got 13 Aug - 3 Sep for £3276 with car 2 ad, 17 Yr old 14 Yr old. Had been looking at changing the dates to later but couldn't change the villa so decided to stick with original.

Feeling excited now, so nice to have something to look forward to. Keeping positive about it. Xx

Why is it so many flights are out from LGW but back into LHR? Just wondered if anyone knew...

It's not that there are flights out of LGW and back into LHR, it's that people are choosing those combinations.

People are choosing those combinations because of the current pricing BA are running where the outbound flight is cheaper out of LGW and the return often significantly cheaper back to LHR. See the screen pic below for the returns from MCO on 7th September.

Broadly there seems to be 2 LGW flights a day in each direction, and 1 to LHR.

Don't need to look again?

I'm not sure you're aware how this works.

The way this works is you check the prices about 10 times a day every day.

If you find the price has gone up you need to immediately start a thread about how you've had a result. If you find the price has gone down, you need to start a thread about how you're gutted that you booked when you did.
