My point was that there are some situations that I wouldn't ever consider as 'stranded'. People know the situation with border closures, caps, airline schedules and new variants is unpredictable, yet despite all of that, chose to accept the risk and stay in the UK (or wherever else). There are seats out of London on the 20th of April, in both economy and premium economy classes, for as little as £735. 'Moving home' is a valid reason to travel out of the UK under the current restrictions.
So do you think that people who are fully employed overseas, perhaps in the middle of a contract, kids in school, house to sell should abandon it all and come home to join the ranks of the unemployed?
