A DREAM holiday turned into a nightmare for a Swanwick couple after they were not told the times of their flights had changed – and missed their plane.
John Peach had booked the four-day trip to Venice as a surprise for wife Cynthia for her 60th birthday because the couple had always wanted to visit the Italian city.
But when Mr and Mrs Peach arrived at East Midlands Airport on April 9 in plenty of time to catch their 5pm flight – they were told it had already left at 12.40pm.
Furious Mr Peach, 57, claims neither the travel agent or the flight company informed him the time had changed - and says the incident has left the couple ‘devastated’.
