Rye’s travellers could look to skies

YOUR headline ‘Bid to avoid travel chaos hits buffers’ is overshadowed by the solution above it, where Virgin’s advertised balloon flights are not only 30 per cent off but include a gift hamper.

However efficient Mr Branson is, I do somehow doubt that he has sufficient balloon capacity to transport all Rye’s college pupils each morning, and their return home would be in doubt unless the wind changed.

Pity though; it would be a spectacular sight and I am sure the hampers would go down a treat in these straightened times.
