    Philippines too,though PNR is ok if has return flight on it and airlines don’t let you fly there without a return ticket.

    Not walkable’though free buses 423 from T5 and any double decker from central (free train from T5) to Harlington corner is free and later night bus from T5 goes there.
    Check times of buses on free app.”Bus checker. Ibis is about 50m from Harlington corner.

    BA operates old A320s with smaller overhead bins than newer aircraft,some are ordered however may go to other IAG airlines.
    With full pax and HBO fares overhead bins don’t have the capacity.
    The advantage you do have with BA is virtually unlimited weight (maybe 23kgs?) ‘though you lift it yourself, so use a lockable hand baggage and keep documents and money in your laptop case or handbag.
    You may thus avoid check in bags, atleast untill you get to the gate!

    NB.Politically incorrect warning for snowflakes!
    Maybe its because they don’t like Palestinian couscous – see BBC news today!
    Only Palestinian land!

    A321LR has superceded the so-called B797 to the Atlantic (and Hawaiian) routes and will the latter aircraft catch up?
    Its 2 aisle cabin and base on the B787 may make a difference eventually to comfort and Business class.
    For now Welsh wings do the work!

    Relatively young countries tend to be more sensitive about their culture, it takes about 200 years before they can relax a little,remember the USA complaining about their national flag on bikinis, or am I being chauvanistic again!

    Never call you a snowflake the way some UK newspapers do,and you make good points about HR procedures for SQ and their government to look into ‘though shouldn’t we enjoy the female/male differences?
    Many countries women still enjoy Miss World and Miss Universe and some female staff have a better attitude to service than some men so its for their government to consider political correctness and let us enjoy their high standard of service?

    Singapore and Hong Kong have the same issue; its better if you are in economy but WAY worse if you aren’t.
    There is nothing premium about queuing 30 mins+ for immigration in Singapore after getting off 13 hours in Suites. Same for 20 mins plus to get into the holding pen for the return flight … My ticket cost $$$

    Never understood the logic of the SIN immigration pen (floor) it probably worked when it wasn’t a busy airport, now its a very poor standard.
    HKG has a frequent visitor pass (sticker on passport) that means virtually no queues -maybe three people maximum – if you get one its magic at immigration and departure.

    Australians have successfully increased tourism over the years and South Africans too.
    Sensible for the Argentinians to do the same taking advantage of their summer to escape the northern winter and developing the market over the year, they may eventually have vegetarian menus too!

    Don’t know Air Swift they fly very modern ATRs, guessed you go to El Nido from T4,the major airlines use other terminals, maybe write and tell us later?
    Certainly easier than going to the island’s capital and taking maybe a seven hour trip in a van to the resort.
    Palawan has a reputation as one of the best islands in the world and Filipino attitudes and near perfect English will make your trip worthwhile. Bon voyage!

    If you bank with the Conservative party?

    Looked at FLIO and it does say 3 hours by ‘intermittent’ shuttlebus between those terminals’though maybe 1 hour of travel – its only 3 kms.
    Luggage should be safe since the President/Transport minister just sacked the handling company for breaking into luggage and a new company will be in place by then.
    Plan to go to Palawan myself later this year’though will start my trip from MNL.
    To allow for luggage collection at T3 and check in atleast one hour at T4, 3 hours is a safe bet. CX has frequent flights.
