So on Monday I finally completed visiting all the capital cities on the British Isles with a little trip to Belfast. I flew from Cardiff with Eastern Airways on their Jetstream J41. Originally my departure time was 10.45 am but Eastern changed that to 07.45 am so that got rid of my lie in and meant an early start. I got to the airport about 6am but had to wait until 06.30 until check in opened. The airport was really quiet as the Belfast flight was the only departure until the 11.45 Ryanair Faro flight. It was so quiet that Duty Free, Costa coffee and the Beer House were all closed but...

Airline Review: easyJet BRS-GLA-BRS Introduction My wife and I have flown many times between England and Scotland, mainly from Bristol Airport with easyJet. Because of the pandemic we haven't flown anywhere since December 2019 when we travelled to Lanzarote with TUI from BRS. This trip was in connection with an eight-night holiday. We've flown with easyJet on innumerable occasions and I don't normally review every trip, but as this one is the first for us since the pandemic disrupted the world I decided to post my thoughts. Outbound On the first Friday in September this year we...

Travel Review BRS - DUB 31-AUG-21 Heading to Dublin today and departed from BRS to DUB with Ryanair. Would have liked to try the Aer Lingus service but timings didn’t work out and we instead went for the 13:20 FR507 to Dublin. A very easy journey to and through the airport and was pleased to see the airport busy with passengers and movements. It took us 40 minutes from leaving home in the centre of Bristol to completing security including bag drop and documents check - we used a taxi to get to the airport. Very impressive and well organised. It was clear a lot of effort has been made...

It’s been 14 months since I flew on a plane, my last flight was from Scotland, Aberdeen to Heathrow in BA Club Europe. That was in March 2020. 14 months and a pandemic later and I’m back flying again, this time from Cardiff Airport to Edinburgh with Loganair on their Embraer 145 jet. It was nice to be flying from my local airport again. Not much had changed at Cardiff except covid 19 measures like blocking off seats, sanitiser and the staff being masked up and in face shields. The airport was quiet as it’s still regaining flights as travel starts to recover so bag drop and going through...

Gatwick reaction to updated traffic light system Stewart Wingate, CEO, Gatwick: “It is bitterly disappointing news for our impacted passengers and airlines that Portugal is to be added to the “amber” list from next week while no further destinations are being opened up for “green” travel. While it is in all of our interests to ensure that we only take forward steps out of the pandemic, we hope that the rest of Europe follows the UK’s speed of public vaccination so that safe and easy travel to and from the UK becomes a reality quickly, particularly as travel between mainland European...

Covid-19 Response From Different Airlines What are different airlines doing in their response to covid-19. I was reading an article yesterday which was saying one US airline was not taking bookings for the middle seat up until at least January. Only last week a friend of mine was flying back from the Middle East with Qatar and he had been provided with face mask and shield for the flight. What are other airlines doing to protect passengers and do you think it is enough or should airlines be doing more?
