    Back and forward to ARN from LHR5 and the lounge in Arn is undoubtably better than Aspire at LHR..their flights have made me a fan of Amex who manage a vast improvement on Airline performances in Aussi and the USA.

    The ability to book a flight with a flat bed on a longhaul overnight and combine with a basic handbag only day flight in the other direction – don’t need all the bells & whistles n both directions…

    Fond memories of Lauda Air….small but run properly

    Not only in hotels….was enjoying my (upmarket) Nile Cruise until I discovered all kitchen cleaning was carried out directly in the Nile…

    Why is it that the airlines still don’t know how to board efficiently….first at the back with window seats, then from the back with other seats then in sections going forward. Hopefully, business/first through a different gate or at any time. Unless I’m stupid enough to pay for an assigned seat on short european trips always board at the very last minute on BA. Not only time for another drink in the lounge but there will be lots of empty eco seats and many will be better than the one you’ve been assigned. Drop in to whichever you like most: the attendants will already be sweating that they could miss their take off slot and take no notice.

    Nice to see that captonianm can be so politically incorrect….if things are ever to improve a bit of political incorrectness is very much needed

    Made a serious point about bad service by leaving a tip of a few cents a few years back and then enjoyed the result that was the lady involved busting into tears…the US system is rubbish and needs sorting out…

    IanfmHKG: Thanks for your explanation but, IF Western Union is providing a transfer service to me as a client they should presumably check at least the recipients ID? Not to do so seems to me failing in a duty of care as, after all, they had accepted a fee to make the transaction for me. I might add that in my case there was an opportunity to catch the fraudsters but neither Western Union (nor the Cyprus police) were remotely interested in co-operating. That there is little political will to improve matters is hardly surprising.

    No excuse now for Ryan as there will be lots of redundant pilots at Monarch

    SimonS1..as a retiree I can think that an unnannoucd visit to this base could be interesting and I doubt as unpleasant as being a Catalan voter..would be worth the experience to tool around there….

    Nice that SimonS1 is so compliant and always does as he is ordered – my view is sometimes to think for myself. I’ve only deplaned once after being told it was not allowed, at Heathrow, from a Pan Am flight that had had hydrolic failures. A grilling by officials was the only consequence.

    Sorry I just don’t accept that if my flight lands somewhere unexpected, I cannot get off the plane. Hopefully I will be in an exit row and then I will disembark myself. If there are not proper facilities that (so far as I am concerned) is the authorities problem and NOT MINE…Sensible support is one thing and something that pax will put up with…stupidity is different
