Last year I purchased some tickets as a joint christmas present for my parents and my partner. We haven't been able to fly due to cancellations from poor weather so we have had to extend our booking until next year. For the pleasure of extending it I had to pay £140 (or £200 for the longer extension) for the 4 of us. Due to family illness we weren't able to start flying until later in the season and despite trying hard to get as many flights booked as possible we were able to attempt three flights as you can only book a month ahead and not within 5 days of one another. A few other things to be aware of is that they only fly for part of the year and it's mornings and evenings only, plus the chance of cancellation, it would seem, is pretty high due to weather. No flying if there is a chance of rain or mist and wind greater than 10 mph. Another challenge is that you only find out if its cancelled a couple of hours before. So it can cause a lot of grief if you have to take time off work or you have kids. These conditions are probably standard across the industry but be aware of the challenges before booking. I can't comment on the flight as we haven't done it yet, I hope its worth the money and hassle.
