    Good addition to IAG portfolio and improved investment will avoid weird charters.
    WW says it will retain its well known name (& brand?) so things will Level out?

    CX website won’t even download premium Y fares because of ‘connection problem’ yet Y fares are available.
    How do you connect the fare with the upgrade miles – not on the CX website – did you call?

    Good for Paris Air Salon last year and use next year too if available, obviously one knows the dates in advance and hotels need advance booking too.

    The same as an LCC advertising fares ‘from £29’ so just needs a change in wording?

    About time it was given to TfL and accepted Oyster cards,it’s the 21st century not the 18th?

    One of the (many!) reasons we’re leaving the EU is they make rules that only the law abiding UK abides by, most other states ignore them.
    However some of those states are supporting Brexit too, notably Italy and Hungary, so let them break their own rules without us?
    Numerous airlines in the real world are subsidised (Air India to the tune of $6billion, american airlines,etc.) so suppose the EU is just being ‘flexible’.

    It must be a Catalan matter,the airport joked it couldn’t extend/build a RWY because Messi lived there (actually it’s a large estate with many wealthy people).
    They had to apologise to him to avoid a legal complaint!

    Discounts may involve the hotel expecting you to spend money so understandable if you don’t check in,’though check in one piece of luggage (duty free wheely bag?) and stay w/friends elsewhere.
    In many locations I prefer meals outside rather than the higher costs at hotels too.

    Interesting to see the incident report eventually and it may not have been a serious threat and only requiring a precautionary landing after dumping fuel.
    Second worst pax of the week at FT was only blamed for “not following the rules” when he called a hijack after the Indigo ‘plane had landed at its destination!

    Likely story! The A346 has plenty of seats for one team in business and even more in economy so probably the women decided to get 3 seats each to sleep better and not be split up?
    Its fake news really by the PC BBC (except salaries – they’re very non PC!) and now the government wants to control fake news!
    Atleast that item won’t cost the licence payers well over £1million (more like £2m!) as reporting on Sir Cliff did.

    Maybe they lease the Hi Fly A380 to increase capacity if they can’t afford new A380s yet, makes the same point that Airbus sales are delayed by A320neo late deliveries?

    A rail/tube link to T5 involves a change. There is a direct bus right outside arrivals to T5!

    TfL service so no real schedule to the end of the route T5, trains more reliable and inside both buildings and free travel within the airport even on Oyster card – valid forever I believe.
    Time maximum one hour even waiting for buses or trains.
    To be sure or if delayed eta/immigration get a taxi,costly’though so far free drop off at last door,top roadway at T5 and stated above First is on your right and into the lounge with your card.

    Connection landsideT4 to landsideT5 no more than an hour,probably less and you need to clearT5 security 45mins before your Pisa etd.
    Arrival landsideT4 depends on immigration ‘though 30mins should be enough.
    Thats 2’15 so time enough subject to immigrationT4. Your route is correct ‘though can’t you use the airside bus if no luggage (or it transfers via the airport?) probably better to transfer luggage yourself!
    If T5 busy suggest you try business class desks with your Emerald card or even First if you’re ok for the lounge?

    Don’t they both have the same american operator?
    No airport regulation in the UK so they’re laughing at us!
