HAVING flown on holidays for 49 years, I had the unfortunate displeasure of flying home from Alicante with TUI on Tuesday.

The half hour delay is not unusual, but when the bar service started at approximately 37,000 feet we were informed no cash could be used, only credit and debit cards, so we could not purchase any water nor hot drinks.

Who said Ryanair was bad?
