  1. Sorry I didn't realise you were incapable of thinking laterally.
  2. Since the announcement of a possible extension to Southampton runway and also the purchase of Bournemouth airport who says he may increase flights, there has been a huge increase in advertised fares from Southampton to Bangkok, via Paris, Amsterdam, and Finland. Adding it all up its going to be cheaper (though longer) to fly from Southampton. I know there's some horrendous change times but that doesn't bother me that much as I read a lot. But pricewise and time from house time its going to be cheaper when I take into account Heathrow long term parking, fuel and driving time. To Southampton, for me, its only a short hop. I'm going out to Bangkok and New Zealand in October so will update then (if I'm still alive)
  3. I thought Lufthansa was a hefty change of flight time in Frankfurt (dont mention the war)
  4. Do NOT fly BA for gods sake. They are now so bad. Their delay and cancellation rate is horrendous and their in flight food etc is appalling https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/dec/19/british-airways-slumps-near-bottom-passenger-survey-airlines The only good thing about flying to BKK on BA is the return will probably be delayed and the compensation is more than you pay for the flight !
  5. Slightly off topic but Boeing really is going downhill fast. Their 'Starliner' due to meet up with the space station wont make it there now after a fault in the last stage. OOOOOOOPS https://www.space.com/boeing-starliner-oft-fails-to-reach-correct-orbit.html?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=dlvr.it
  6. Just snooping around the forum and found this. Twould seem that Southampton is enlarging its runway https://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/16887861.southampton-airport-announces-plans-to-extend-runway/ I also heasrd rumours about them buying or attempting to buy some of the land to the east of it. Could cause some public rows??
  7. Having been persuaded to go back to Bangkok for next Songkran........4 weeks back I checked the fares. Thai were £475. Checked yesterday Thai £751 !! Eva at £582. I suspect the Olympics in Japan is creating some increases
  8. A month or so ago I bought a return on TG for mid May. £469. My friend now wants to come with me and I'm shocked to see the same flight as mine is now £622 !! bit of a price jump.??
  9. Ah but hindsight is such a wonderful thing
  10. This may not belong on this category if so please move it. I noticed the huge pile of wreckage from the Ethiopian crash, then looked at the videos of the Flight 93 crash where there was very little wreckage. Any ideas??
  11. It was down to £372 a few weeks back. I wouldnt fly them at any price. Cramped old 777's. There were some cracking KLM and Air France fares on Skyscanner too with pretty short connecting times.
  12. Airbus and China Aviation Supplies Holding Company (CAS) signed an agreement for Chinese airlines to purchase 300 aircraft during president Xi Jinping’s visit to France. The order is thought to be worth tens of billions of dollars. Under the agreement, China will buy 290 A320-family aircraft and ten A350 XWB-family aeroplanes. https://buyingbusinesstravel.com/news/2730072-china-buys-300-airbus-aircraft?qt-sidebar_tabs=0 https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-25/airbus-is-said-to-seal-long-awaited-aircraft-order-from-china
  13. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/us-news/breaking-boeing-737-plane-identical-14190950 A Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane identical to the Ethiopian crash jet that killed everyone on board earlier this month has been forced into an emergency landing. The Southwest Airlines flight crew declared an emergency on board before landing safely back in Orlando, it has emerged this evening. There were no passengers on board at the time and the flight was heading to to Victorville, California for repositioning but returned safely to Orlando at about 2:50 p.m. (1850 GMT). The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said the flight had suffered an 'engine-related' problem. It comes weeks after airlines around the world grounded their Boeing 737 MAX aircrafts following the Ethiopia tragedy which killed 157 people.
  14. I mean using Boeing's logic its like selling a car without brakes. "Oh sorry they are extra' You couldnt make it up.
  15. I still wont fly on a Nightmareliner.
