Woman boards plane to Ibiza on drunken whim after spending day at christening
A woman who took a flight to Ibiza on a drunken whim says she has been left £700 out of pocket due to her boozy antics.
Rachael Wynn, from Salford, arrived on the Spanish island on Sunday wearing a silky jumpsuit and had nothing with her but her passport and a bank card.
The 32-year-old decided to book the flights after spending the day at a christening, the Manchester Evening News reported .
But she admits it is the "stupidest thing she has ever done" and is now desperately trying to make her way home.
Rachael says the spur of the moment decision has cost her the best part of £700 – and says her friends think she is "crazy".
She is now due to fly back home to Manchester on Wednesday morning after having to explain her absence to her boss.
When asked why she decided to act so impulsively, Rachael said: “I was p***ed.”
“It’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever done.”
She added: “I was at a christening and it was also my friend’s birthday that day so I went to my friend’s afterwards.
“My friends were already here in Ibiza and asked if I wanted to come. I’ve come out here with the clothes on my back, my bank card and my passport.”
Rachael got a taxi to the airport with a friend and says she arrived at Manchester Airport at around 2am on Monday morning
She bought a flight to Ibiza with Jet2 – and says her knowledge of boarding the plane is “a distant memory”.
“I can’t remember it,” she says.
“I was still loving life at the airport.
“It’s the stupidest thing I have ever done. I’m not like this usually. I’ve never done anything like this.
“I was p***ed. I was absolutely p***ed. I had been drinking all day at this christening. When I got on the plane I thought ‘what have I done?’.”
Rachael, from Winton, Salford, has been desperately trying to get home after arriving in Ibiza at around 9am yesterday when she was supposed to be in work.
“I tried so hard to get a flight back yesterday,” she said.
“I had to ring my boss and explain and say I had a flight on Wednesday. He said I had to get a flight sooner than that. I managed to book one for this morning but they emailed to say there were no flights left.
“I booked another for tonight to go via Frankfurt but they didn’t send me the tickets in time. I’ve now got a flight tomorrow. The whole thing has cost me about £700.
"My boss was not happy at all but he’s alright now I think. He's a great boss and it's a great company to work for. He will be disappointed but hopefully he'll see the funny side.
"The only reason I went is because I thought I'd be able to get home in time for work. I feel really bad about it."
