Essex is NOT noveau-riche , if you want noveau-riche got to hertfordshire(home of Victoria beckham) or Sandbanks in Bournemouth.
Bournemouth is the capitial of the noveau-riche , too many 18 year olds driving golf convertables because of daddy and are sent to any old private school in the hope of a decent education. If you want a noveau-riche holiday experience then book with Virgin.
with virgin holidays you get the same pikes as you would with 'mytravel' but insteead of being dirt poor, they actually have cash and dont they let others know it. They clikc their fingers at the cabin crew, shouted out for some 'bubbly' yet wont pay champange prices so they drink 'cava' or 'chadooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrryyyyy
and instead of reading a respectable newspaper they read the daily mirror and watch itv on a saturday night!
the 'rude boys' in essex all drive 306s or a silver citeron, buy five seasons old calvin klein wear in tx maxx and think just because they have one tope from french connection then suddenly they are fashionable!
Airtours holidays pax can be easily spotted by four simple tests:
1) They have a copy of the daily Mirror or the Mail
2) The woemn wear a top with karen millen plastered all over it and have eitther fake burberry orfake louis vitton bags(or maybe the real thing but its still too common, they shop shop in celine instead!)
3) the teenagers have an inability to string a sentence together that doesnt contain at least three glottal stops ( eg walha rather than water) nor contain the pharse 'wicked'.
4) the middle aged pax huddle together in groups and at least one of them has a bumbag and one has a pair of shades stuck on their head
If you are really lucky you might spot the 'middle class' airtours holiday maker, typically your thrity five year old frump with her husband stuart and her children 'milly' and 'barnaby', clutching the lastest Zadie smith novel or the daily mail. her husband has the lastest steven king or jon grisham novel and oen of her children has harry potter with the other reading 'horrible histories'.
avoid them at all costs and have a nice time on your pikey flgiht, im a student but id rather resort to ryanair' bargin bucket prices and bargin bucket service' then actually pay for airtours. Whether the airline and the company is repackaged as 'mytravel' or not, its still the same pikey hell hole with the same rude staff, same excuses and same lame airline.
It is amazing what can be accomplised when nobody takes the credit
