Waiting to see the reaction at LGW before retrofitting the LHR fleet?in reply to: IAG Capital Markets Day 20167 Mar 2018
From Aberdeen Airport: TRAVEL ALERT: There are numerous cancellations from ABZ to the London area tomorrow (01 March), please check with your airline. British Airways flights BA1305 and BA1307 to LHR at 0920hrs and 1040hrs are operating as usual. Our runway remains open, excluding for essential snow clearing operations. Passengers are advised to check with their airline for specific information relating to their flight.
We’ve had little in the way of snow up here in comparison to Edinburgh / Glasgow and the central belt. Drifting is the main problem. I work under the flightpath of ABZ and the airport seems mostly to have been operating normally albeit with delays.in reply to: British Airways cancels all flights to Scotland1 Mar 2018
I do find it interesting that both ABZ and GLA have suffered recent cuts to services, both are owned and operated by AGS (as well as Southampton). This makes me wonder whether it is all down to APD or perhaps AGS having unrealistic fees/unwillingness to help airlines if/when routes aren’t performing as expected? AGS’ loss is GIP’s gain … EDI and LGW seem to be doing fine!in reply to: Ryanair closes Glasgow base1 Mar 2018
I’ve seen this in the past and first noticed when looking to book flights with Lufthansa – the airlines use the cookies data from your web browser, clear the cache from your internet browser and cookie data and it won’t know you’ve already visited 🙂3 Feb 2018
They are quick to promote this! …

Wonder how they will use the slots?
– More high density 777’s to take on Norweigan?
– Opportunity to give Level a base in the UK?
In either case, where will they fly to I wonder?27 Nov 2017
Having used the new Northern Lights lounge at ABZ on several occasions now it is a world of difference to the previous Swissport and BA Lounges. Step change in quality in terms of what is being offered. BA will really need to up their game at ABZ (perhaps why it is taking so long?)in reply to: BA Lounge at Aberdeen23 Nov 2017
Agree that LH short-haul offers a great service. Despite my local airport being ABZ, I have a choice of flight to hubs – BA LHR, AF CDG, SAS CPH, LH FRA, KL AMS and to a lesser extent EI DUB. I detest LHR T5 and BA service and 99/100 will fly LH via FRA. Efficient service, no circling the sky, in fact, no messing about, you just land at FRA! I’d recommend them to anyone.

I always take these statistics with a pinch of salt. Has there actually been an increase in the number of passengers trying to take a gun on board with them? Or rather have security measures been improved to facilitate more weapons being found than before?30 Mar 2017
If you want an immersive experience of a family run Kobe beef steakhouse I couldn’t recommend Hakushu Teppanyaki enough! (https://goo.gl/maps/tnm8YDhYiRr) 3 generations of the same family run the restaurant – grandfather cuts the beef, grandmother cooks it right in front of you. Children and grandchildren serve drinks etc. Only issue is that it is small and very popular. I was visiting a friend in Tokyo and we tried to contact the restaurant for 5 hours to make a booking without success. We decided to try our luck and arrived 10-15 minutes before it opened and managed to get a table. Quite pricey but in terms of quality and service, I don’t think I have ever had better – the steak just melts in your mouth!
Whilst in Shibuya it is always great to spend time in Starbucks, overlooking Shibuya crossing as the people and vehicles move around like ants a couple of storeys below. Again, it’s very popular so it can take some time to get a window seat!
Hope this proves usefulin reply to: Weekend in Tokyo – suggestions25 Jan 2017
I’ve used AirBnB on three occasions now, in Panama City, Edinburgh and most recently, Geneva. My experiences to date have all been positive. All three hosts have communicated with me very well, asking when I am due to arrive, letting me know where I should meet them and providing me with directions to get to the property. Two of the three also gave me their personal contact number so we could message each other via Whatsapp before and during my stay if there were any issues.
All three properties were well located for public transport and had information packs about the local area – supermarkets, restaurants etc. that they would recommend.
I’ve booked further stays for the future and particularly where hotel prices are extortionate (e.g. Geneva!) I’d highly recommend AirBnB.
Hope you have a similar experience.
