Geneva? ZRH is truly ghastly.

I've found CE service seems to be either totally awesome or motion sickness material. On a BRU flight once, the crew apologised for the meal and admitted they would...

I have tried this app and when I select 'Find Hotels' it does nothing but change the colour of the button - it returns no results. I personally don't have the time to waste on this app. I can't...

I think there is a broader issue here.

There are GGLs that spend next to nothing on BA metal, some Bronze members probably spend more than a lot of them. Many GGLs do MRs and seek TPs to get...

Hilton LHR T4 dragon told me that the change was that they are now allowed to remove spirits at each property's discretion. LHR T4 decided it was nonsense - they are keeping the spirits. So not an...

What I was hearing from them is that once checked-in it's the passenger's responsibility to clear security and get to the gate on time. But at least they are not being unreasonable about this viz...

The bottom line seems to be that LHRT5 is simply dysfunctional. How old is ZRH now and they have embarrassingly faster transfer times even when busses are involved. Yet brand-new T5 makes no sense...
