    My cheapest ever air fare was MAN-LHR with BEA on a Super 1-11 in 1970. It was a youth stand-by ticket which cost £2.50.

    Morning Alex, may I take the liberty of correcting you? In 1970 you would have paid £2 10s! Ah for those days again ?

    When an Airfix Sunderland flying boat model could be had for 19s/11 1/2d 🙂 (until July 1969, so nearly).

    Of course £2.50 in 1970 is £38 today according to my inflation calculator, still, not bad… I hated standby, though.

    Just out of interest and depending how you with to assess it, the current value of £2s10 could range from 31.62 to £86.72.

    Worth a quick look if you have 2 mins spare time.

    Thanks for the link, FDOS_UK, that’s interesting and useful. And I had no idea that such a wide range of calculations was possible.

    You’re welcome – I did a ‘A’ Level in Economics, for my sins and had to look at this type of stuff 🙂
