Early morning start for our flight to Melbourne, a wait in Melbourne then on to Launceston.
Oops - didn't quite turn out that way - flew to Launceston alright but the airport was fogged in so aircraft came straight back to Melbourne.
We had already waited around for that flight for some 3 hours but then had another 5 hour wait for our designated flight after returning to Melbourne. Bummer!
Waited 3 hours till about 7pm then decided it was all too hard so we made arrangements to stay at the Holiday Inn at the Airport overnight and catch the flight to Tasmania in the morning.
Meant ringing accommodation venue, car hire in Tasmania, hotel to see if there was a room available, Virgin staff to see if we could swap flights, get our bags back to us and walk over to the hotel.
All worked okay and by the time we heard our flight actually departing, we were in bed and probably 10 mins from sleep so made a good choice!
