    Reading the BA inflight magazine on a flight 3 days ago, it said the boarding changes are to be implemented in December 2018. Don’t know if this is a misprint, but I saw no evidence on the new boarding procedures on my two flights over Christmas

    I thought all the grapes in France had to be re-imported from the USA after the Great Wine Bight so that there is really no such thing as French wine ?

    I flew from Schiphol on Wednesday afternoon. At around 3.30pm it took about 20 minutes to get through security. It could have been less had all security lanes been open, and it seemed as if everyone was being given the full body search.

    There also seemed to be a shortage of buses for the UK flights from the D6 gate which meant most flights had short delays. My flight to Heathrow took off 45 minutes late after the taxi to the Polderbaan

    Ormond replied “At least I’m the best cricketer in my family!

    “Would all passengers wishing to travel to Mauritius on flight xxx please go to Gate 6”.

    I wished I was going to Mauritius, but boarded my flight to Brussels instead

    Not tautology but the slip road off the M23 at Gatwick Airport states “Use both lanes for Gatwick”. I think they mean use either lane but I drove down the middle straddling both lanes just in case…..

    In 1986 my brother was getting married in Hong Kong so I paid £660 for a return ticket in economy on British Caledonian. I bought the ticket at least 3 months before travelling.

    Over 30 years later you can probably do the same journey for less than this
