  1. I dont apologise to anyone because on the date I checked (see my post) the changeover time were horrendous. You can see the timings on my post and to be honest even looking at Skyscanner prices today most and I say most not all flights have horrendous changeover times. I stick with my original statement but you can continue arguing if it pleases you.
  2. Check my OP I was remarking on dates in NOVEMBER THIS YEAR, not 2022 as you have quoted. Do keep up. You are using dates in 2022 I am checking dates in October November THIS year. By the Way I wont use Travel Trolley they shafted me once and wont do it again.
  3. In all the cheap SIA flights I have checked its between 12 and 24 hours changeover, because everything depends on the timing of the Sin to BKK flight. Having just checked SIA on Skyscanner, there is not ONE cheap SIA flight with a changeover either way less than 17 hours. https://www.skyscanner.net/transport/flights/lond/bkkt/211005/211020/?adultsv2=1&airlines=SQ&cabinclass=economy&childrenv2=&inboundaltsenabled=false&outboundaltsenabled=false&preferdirects=false&preferflexible=false&rtn=1
  4. Singapore Airlines UK to BKK. Before you all get excited? check the changeover timings?? Horrendous
  5. And now the NIMBY's are appealing the decision to allow the extension to Southampton
  6. Pretty much the same as me me mate. Hope the Baht is still low
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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)
  11. Southampton Runway extension has been granted https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-57348803

  13. Sorry I didn't realise you were incapable of thinking laterally.
  14. 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
  15. I thought Lufthansa was a hefty change of flight time in Frankfurt (dont mention the war)
  16. 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 !
  17. 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
  18. 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??
  19. 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
  20. 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.??
  21. Ah but hindsight is such a wonderful thing
  22. 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??
  23. 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.
  24. 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
  25. 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).
