    Flew FAO to BHX yesterday. Inbound to FAO early but delayed 45 mins departing FAO because of a shortage of French ATC. Captain wondered if it was a consequence of France winning the night before:-)

    No Different than SuperBowl Sunday in DFW.

    The main difference of course it only happen that England reach the World Cup semis approx every 30 years whereas Superbowl Happens every Year.

    Always look on the Bright Side of Life

    Since when is it anything to do with the CEO at LHR to determine how many border force staff are on at any time?
