  1. Hello All I am thinking of visiting LOS from the UK again late October/ early November time, I have not seriously looked but the airfares I did look at were very expensive. Is it that all airfares have gone up anyway or is the World Cup affecting fares.? I thought that it wouldn't affect Eva, but their fare was also high. TIA
  2. I am going to leave it until after Christmas anyway, but I hope to go to LOS (does anyone still call it that?) around 24th January. However, I want to make sure that bars are open etc etc, the purpose of going to Thailand is to have some fun, if that is not possible then i can wait. I have not ruled out a Pattaya, Koh Samet, Koh Chang holiday if I go, patience is a virtue. 🙂
  3. Yes, that's a good tip worth looking into yselmike.
  4. Thanks BM's, I am not booking until after Christmas anyway, so things may change. PG's website seems to indicate you have to clear immigration at BKK, I tried on the EK web site to book BHX-USM but it wasn't having it. Yorta, that's not a bad call, I'll look into it.
  5. Hello again BM's, I'm getting itchy fingers.:) and thinking of going to Koh Samui in January. If I fly Emirates to Thailand from the UK, I think that I have to book two seperate tickets, the UK one with EK from BHX-BKK and the BKK-USM one with PG. Given that it is not a through ticket but Koh Samui airport is an International airport, can I transit through BKK without going through immigration and checking back in again, and then go through immigration/customs at Samui? I seem to remember a few years ago when returning from Samui with Bangkok Air and Eva Air I was able to leave
  6. I have been double jabbed and I will be happier when I have the booster in the Autumn. November 9th ish is when I would like to go to Thailand, fortunately I can leave it until late September early October before I decide if a trip is feasible. If not then the alternatives will have to be considered.
  7. I was fortunate to fly on the TG A350 when it was briefly on the LHR route a couple of years ago, IMHO it's a lovely aircraft.
  8. Presumably these pods are very similar to the crew rest pods on long haul aircraft.
  9. Rawhide, how very true. I was recently on a cruise and one of the guest speakers was an ex air accident investigator and he pretty much said what you have said. He indicated that he had very little confidence in Air France. When I used to go to the USA a lot I flew Virgin Atlantic, many ex RAF pilots with VS. Nowadays I take pot luck, I had Eva and Thai but my next trip is Emirates, I am sorry but I couldn't fly BA in spite of them having the best flight crews in the world..
  10. Probably long overdue, although I do not fly BA. I know that BA are refurbishing their Gatwick based 777-200s and did intend to then start their refurb on the LHR ones.
  11. Now some of the 737-800s have been grounded due to metal fatigue on some bolts where the wing joins the fuselage, not a large amount of frames but enough to keep the press happy.
  12. Finnair have a special Business Class offer on at the moment, around £1680 and available from Manchester and LHR.
  13. And it does, but T2 has a Wetherspoon's and also a London Pride pub.?
  14. Butch, Presumably starting from the front of the aircraft first. ?
  15. Thank you all, especially severn. I may well give EK a go, I was deterred in the past as some of the flights were on a 777. Eva, I would only use if Elite Class was lower and that is not going to happen. TG, I liked the A350 but since Star Alliance their flights can be very busy.
