  1. And now the NIMBY's are appealing the decision to allow the extension to Southampton
  2. Pretty much the same as me me mate. Hope the Baht is still low
  3. Maybe these reports might convince you?? https://simpleflying.com/boeing-777x-certification-delays/ https://www.reuters.com/business/aerospace-defense/boeing-777x-realistically-will-not-win-certification-approval-before-mid-2023-us-2021-06-27/ https://thepointsguy.co.uk/news/trouble-for-boeing-777x/ https://airlinegeeks.com/2021/06/27/boeing-777x-certification-delayed-to-2023-after-faa-notification/ https://onemileatatime.com/news/boeing-777x-certification-issues/ https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/28/business/boeing-777x-delays-faa.html
  4. Is the FAA just trying to make up for its past cockups by being hardline or are they just doing their Job? whatever ,Boeing is in the shit again
  5. That's so cool. back in the late 70s I suffered a badly torn retina after a car smash. I had an operation to try and repair the retina which Included putting something called a dissolving 'Boat' into my eye to hold the retina in place against the back of the eye. It was the most painful 2 months of recovery I have ever suffered and the operation didn't work. when I went back to the Hospital I asked them if they had taken the outboard off the boat before they shoved it into my eye!. The retina in my left eye has now slowly folded down and I lost the vision in it. But its incredible how one
  6. I wouldnt worry about that, the way the new variants are appearing I doubt Thailand will open to anyone untill at least next year (if then)
  7. Southampton Runway extension has been granted https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-57348803

  9. Sorry I didn't realise you were incapable of thinking laterally.
  10. 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, fo
  11. I thought Lufthansa was a hefty change of flight time in Frankfurt (dont mention the war)
  12. 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 !
  13. 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
  14. 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??
  15. 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
