Brazil: 12000 mile round trip. Will have to fly back on the Thursday night - skip work on the Friday, but my boss, a die-hard Arsenal fan who understands the situation, has a plan to cover for me - then back out on Sunday night, arrive back in Brazil at 5am on Monday morning, jump in a taxi and back at work by 8am. M-en-t-a-l!
Am 99.9% going to get the flight...just being a wee bit cautious and waiting for the ticket arrangements first, to see what my chances are of getting one.
Very impressive thread.

Travelling up on the 7.30am train (couldn't face the 5.15am alarm for the 6.05 am departure) from Euston to Central - get in at noon, a few scoops with mates in Glasogow. Watch us win the cup. Job's a good 'un
Sunday: awake with monstrous hangover following winning celebrations, go to see victory parade, few more beers, 6pm train back down the road, more beers on train. Back to Oxford about 1am. Work on Monday morning with a massive grin on my face, but a hangover that could down an elephant.
Total travel costs, including getting to London from Oxford: £90. Worth every penny.
Total distance travelled: About 900 miles. Worth every inch.
Geneva Hibs and Kirriemuir Harp Hibs SC confirming that the call up has been answered and flights booked! Relatively short distance compared to some but we will be there!
As a footnote Easyjet are not slow to take advantage! £400 for what is normally a £69 flight! Bandits! And the laddie has to pay full price as well. Dunno how hes going to be able fit in sweeping all those lums between now and May!
I'm coming up from Southern England to the game, Problem I have is I join a new ship on Sunday. As we will win, not sure if I'm going to make my date to join the ship so this will mean after 20 years clean record i'll be officially AWOL. Which means possibly a reduction in rank and a 28 day (minimum) Holiday in Colchester Military Prison. All I ask is the players put in 100% effort and the 28 days will sail by. GGTTH
what rank are you at the mo? will it mean drop in salary? thats dedication
Not so far obviously but it would appear elder son is returning from Coleraine for the final. Noticed Mummy had kindly bought him a ticket on line with my credit card :-). Can't deny him really can I?

Good effort lads! I'm making my way back from Alpha, Queensland (middle of Australia's outback). Catching a flight to Brisbane, have to wait there for two nights, then catch a flight to China, 17 hour wait in Beijing, then onto Amsterdam and finally arriving in Edinburgh at 10pm on the Friday. Praying I can get my hands on a ticket but if not I'm just glad I'll be able to watch the game with fellow Hibees!
Coming from Western Australia, via Singapore and a cheeky one night stay in Amsterdam (it would be rude not too :) ) Then flight to Edinburgh, staying at my Mums in Livingston and drinking from the Friday night in Easter Road till 3pm at Hampden. C'mon the hibees!!!!
Same as all the other ex pat hibees, concerned we might not get a ticket so considering hospitality priced tickets to be sure. Be horrible to come all that way and not get a ticket for the game. Catch 22!
