As for your original plan for Costa Rica : I flew down there with BA in 2016 and had a great week in what is a very welcoming and friendly country. I believe it’s widely considered as one of today’s very best ‘wildlife destinations’ worldwide. Seems a pity that it might not work out for you, but I wish you safe travels whatever you decide.

Fantastic to see such recommendations for the Malaysian part of Borneo. It reaffirms my decision to head there for a few weeks of vacation in May

Really looking forward to this trip, and the opportunity to fly again in a world-class F product in the form of LX will give the trip a great start
