    Firstly I do not work for Vueling, I am not associated with them in anyway and I am normally the first to complain if something goes wrong…

    However back at the end of February I had to fly to Barcelona for business and I decided rather than pay the exorbitant amount to fly SQ direct I would fly BA through LHR, transfer to LGW and then fly to BCN

    This was done with Vueling, I asked at the time whether they were any good and I was given various responses, but without any other way or indeed sitting in LHR for 5 hours I decided to take the plunge!

    I have to say the whole experience in both directions, including check in, getting on the plane, arrival, luggage, departure etc and arrival were perfectly acceptable for a LCC, the service was as I expected if not slightly better and before this thread would have recommended anyone to try them.

    One let down and this really wasnt the fault of the airline, it was through the very cold snap you guy had back in Feb/Mar and the plane luggage door somehow got stuck shut and we had to wait a while for our luggage, however with some colleagues unable to fly at all due to the weather even that was not a major issue!

    I think this highlights that on any given day there can be exceptions to the norm and even the best carriers can have a poor day, I have experienced much worse on First World International airlines, so just wanted to add a bit of balance ….

    rferguson thank you for that insight, what I dont see is any changes on the SIN route on both the 777 and 380 service, is this not regarded or deemed worthy as one of the longer sectors or is it already done??

    Thanks 🙂

    Just as an aside to this, what about if you want to travel to the World Cup this summer, would each and everyone who intends to travel need to jump through the same hoops? Not that I intend to go you understand, why go through the grief to see your team fail miserably again!!!!!!

    The same question is asked for visas to India please state all the countries you have been to in the last 10 years and then stops after you’ve named 10 or so and that for me was just last month!!!

    Are the visa forms on line as they are in India’s case?

    I am fully sympathetic to Marc_ACB and his feelings towards the bigotry that the Russian Government has shown in the past and present to the LGBT community, there is nothing worse than just feeling unsettled in a country with views like that. However as also a Gay man I have spent a lot of time in Russia and have never had to deal with any form of prejudice as I just keep a low profile and you will be fine… I say to him don’t let their archaic views stop you from anything you want to do anywhere ……

    I have to concur with SimonS1 the site is extremely slow these days, and whilst I don’t necessarily have an issue with the reCaptcha it clearly is not working when spam keeps appearing…

    You can manually input as the app is generally not accurate …..

    Martyn, I dont understand, surely you know which terminal you are going into when you land in Heathrow, I mean I dont live in the UK anymore but know exactly which terminal my flight is arriving into..

    BA generally 5 with a few exceptions
    Star Alliance Terminal 2
    Some of the ME 4 others 3
    Trans Continental 3

    It would be an issue here in SG as from time to time flights will end up in different terminals especially if you are flying SQ!!

    Martyn, Martyn, Martyn, you mean you dont turn on your phone when you land like everyone else on the plane??

    I was actually being serious for once, but thank you for the “vote of confidence” 🙂 Last time I needed an Uber at Heathrow I ordered it on the plane and it was at the pick up point when I arrived almost perfect timing … as you know I always travel light!!!
