SCROOGE AIR SLUGS TEENS
By DARREN COYNE
SEVEN Byron High students are to be slugged $110 each by an Indonesian airline for cancelling a trip to Bali because they fear terrorist attacks and bird flu.
At the same time other airlines have waived their cancellation fees. The budget airline is resolute in its decision to impose a fee on the boys.
It could well be the most costly lesson of their HSC year and a sober introduction to the world outside school.
The mates Toby Warnes, Jarrah Balderstone, Matt Miller, Danny Casey, Corey Hosking, Chris Slowdon and Jacob Tate had been saving for their dream schoolies holiday for a couple of years, working part-time jobs around study.
