I'd say the management out here in NZ have done their very best to look after us in what was a fast moving situation. L3 in the UK on the other hand should be ashamed of themselves for staying open.
Might be good for you, but different to what I'm hearing from some of your fellow cadets who had just finished their NZ part of the training and who have been discussing it on twitter, L3 took a commercial decision not to repatriate them when they were due to because of cost. Instead they must now wait it out. I guess there's no rush as there won't be jobs for some time yet, however I'd much rather not be paying in NZD!
