So I returned on Thursday (15th) from once again a lovely week away in Gran Canaria using BHX for the second time, and once again it was a very enjoyable visit We departed Cardiff at around 03:30 and arrived at BHX shortly after 05:30, We paid the £2 to drop off outside the terminal and it was a very quick and efficient process, We approached the TUI bag drop area, which was very quiet , A friendly greeting arrived and we were asked if we had used the self service bag drop before, indeed we had so we proceeded to scan the boarding pass and place the bags on the scale to weigh and print...
What are your passenger rights?
  • 70
  • 7
I recently booked a package holiday to USA. There was one long haul flight (UK to USA) then one connecting internal flight in USA - this was bought as one journey rather than 2 separate ones. Both flights were with the same airline (US based). On the way home the first (internal US) flight was cancelled (bad weather elsewhere in US meant the plane never made it on time to the airport). We were booked on the next available flight - the same one 24 hours later - free of charge. As a result we incurred various extra costs such as accommodation and food etc. Normally I believe if the...

London Stansted Airport has received recognition for its support of foodbanks in local communities, at the Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice. The airport received a ‘gold’ award for a scheme which began as a trial in 2017, ‘recycling’ non-perishable food, drink and toiletry items which had to be surrendered by passengers due to hand luggage security restrictions by giving them to local foodbanks across Uttlesford, Essex and East Hertfordshire. Now a permanent initiative, it has contributed to supporting more than 3,000 local families to date and is run entirely by...

Global Warming or Global Cooling?

What are your thoughts on climate change? For the last two decades at lest we have been spoon fed a global warming agenda, "the Earth is burning up", our "use of fossil fuels is causing Co2 to spiral out of control". More recently the IPCC lead by the United Nations released a report saying we have to take immediate action to save the planet from catastrophe. During the 90's I went along with this narrative. As a person who has always been interested in weather and the climate I have always followed the subject with much interest and like most people I went along with the idea that man...

What's your favourite Christmas advertisement?

Christmas is almost upon us and the annual array of Christmas advertisements are starting to fill our TV screens. Which Christmas advertisement is your favourite, past or present? My personal favourites are produced for a local shopping mall The Victoria Quarter in Leeds. I look forward to seeing their latest Christmas advertisement every year. It may possibly be used by the owners of the centre for other shopping malls in the UK. As for the national Christmas advertisements, John Lewis is good but I don't think there ad is as good this year as it usually is. Similarly with the Heathrow...

Brexit

Generally speaking I try not to get involved in political debate and discussions.However i would like to play devils advocate here. Did anyone else see the story in one of the National papers last week stating the reasons why most of the EU want the U.K. to stay in the Union. Strangely it was missed by the pro EU propaganda machine that is the BBC,as well as other sources. The reason,as if we didn’t know is purely down to the money we put in.They do not want to lose it,as admitted by Malta and the Czech Republic.Also no one ever tells what the implications are for the rest of the EU,how...

True, TCX has seen better days but their LBA offering was already on its arse so there's no excuse to have lost what little was left. At least Bill Savage secured a base from the then Airtours, and Britannia/Thomson. Now all lost. Meeson must be laughing. I really don't understand how Jet2 - a relative newcomer - seem to be able to get it right and the elder statesmen can only cut and run. Backhanders, maybe ?

Is it just me, or has LBA achieved nothing since David Outlaws and his gang have been in charge ? Terminal improvements aside, which are a legacy of the previous management, the airport just keeps on losing business. If I was AMP, I would be putting the genial Geordie on notice just now.
Is anybody feeling christmassy yet ? Im not ;-( Maybe some mulled wine will help with proceedings ??
10th anniversary of mum's death and my near miss. Gone but never forgotten,
So Manchester Airport has done a Throwback Thursday featuring my shot of an An124. Nice surprise.
