1971 Malta

Mr Mintoff had managed to ruin Malta's tourist industry, and no foreign tourists were going there. There were crazy offers, and this included one for airline staff which was £25 each for a week in the Phoenicia hotel in Valetta, including flights from London, but £19 each from Birmingham. We opted for Birmingham, and quite strangely the flight stopped at London to pick up passengers. Anyway we enjoyed a remarkably cheap week in Malta
