    Reports of traffic waiting 1 hour to exit T1 drop off after new charge implemented. Any one have experience of this yet?

    LH business is very comfortable, it’s not as flashy as some but very efficient.In my opinion Muc is a far better airport to transit that Fra.

    If you haven’t been before your in for a treat. It’s a wonderful destination. Just book a hotel with a decent pool so when the family are not at an attraction there’s a nice pool for them. That’s it, enjoy!

    What an astonishing comment for him to make over the gender for his position as CEO of QR. Despite the attempt to later retract his comments he has sealed his opinion for lack of gender equality within the industry. What an idiot.

    Agree with FDOS and others , were the ones who have to plan for any eventuality not the carriers. I have missed many Sunday lunches with the family, but I never missed a customer meeting or arrive in bad shape for it.
    It’s good to have a rant though!

    A colleague and I had been in Brasil, we both left Gig, I had a through flight to Lhr via Gru my colleague had to change for Cdg. In Gru they didn’t make you leave the plane if that aircraft was the one for your final destination.
    My colleague soundly asleep stayed on, no one disturbed him, No passenger joining the flight had his seat number, he finally woke up 2 hours from JFK

    Max11, assuming you need connection primarily for work and keeping in touch with home, the WiFi available at the vast majority of hotels and cafes is more than suitable. Depends on where you are, if you want to stream Netflix etc then that’s not always so good, but for day to day email, FT or Skype you will be well covered. Enjoy your trip, first time I assume? Safe travels.

    Brilliant that the iconic Theme Building is still deemed modern enough to survive and make an appearance (back right) in the future.

    We have all had something similar happen with many airlines, and yes it’s often the recovery by the carrier that we measure the incident on.
    If your wife missed her flight ex Hel , then a 6 hour delay to arrive in Sgn sounds still pretty good if a re route via another Asian city was involved.

    Only 3 weeks ago took 1a and b for my wife to Tenerife, so 4 hours which is a long time for me in economy, but it was ok. Good leg room to the bulk head, better than I expected. Seats a little narrow to accommodate the inarm tables but was ok.
    On the counter to that Thomas Cook premium economy return A321 was awful, with a seat narrower than my Eazyjet flight and my knees pressing into the seat back in front.

    I find it works best at the carriers home base, where the relationship with the agents is conducted properly or in some cases airline still have its own ground staff.
    None of this applies to Man, my home base. Regardless of how many, first, business, gold, priority tags are on your case you’ll get it when the baggage handlers deem fit.

    Jeffd, were they liquid medicines, if not what on earth could be the issue with airline security. Even then if the liquids fell within the allowed container quantities what’s the issue. Worst case they can do a swab test.

    Manchester is my home airport and like you for over 20 years minimum 2 flights per week, it’s a disgrace, has been for years and will be until new terminals finished, assuming they are fit for purpose.

    The issue with most is that they don’t seem (could be good reasons) to concentrate on a sector with multiple daily flights such as LHR .
    So it can be months or longer before every aircraft servicing that route is upgraded. From a marketing stance yes it’s good to cover as many routes asap but that then leaves the issue of not all passengers enjoying the same benefits for the same cost.
