I guess the only people booking to go to Brazil tomorrow are those that have to go, hence the high fares. They know there'll be limited tourists so no point trying to attract them with low last...

Catering was never really the defining feature of buying a J ticket. If they are happy lying across 3 Y seats, book economy. Otherwise book J. Austin does't seem to go direct until 1 Oct. Before...

Maybe it's worth investing in a visor - I assume that would make it easier for you to breathe, but also count's as a "face covering". At the moment it's more about showing you're making an effort,...

M&S in arrivals is closed. I think Boots is pretty much the only thing open, and there's very little food (maybe none fresh).

There's plenty of mixers onboard (inc tonic), but no ice or lemon.

Do you think bonded airport liquor stores count as essential business? Maybe the alcohol providers have sensibly shut up shop due to the lockdown. Likewise Tourvest who operate the onboard duty free.

There might be restrictions inside some airports downroute, but once onboard, everything should be as normal (assuming things are back to "normal" by Ramadan).

Given the number of grounded aircraft, even airline crew aren't flying regularly!

So he's got an overnight layover in London? In that case he has no option but to go through immigration as the airport closes overnight. BA *might* offer/be able to check the bags through to the USA...

Maybe a good time for BA to have off loaded that, but awful time for Swissport to pick it up just as BHD empties out with the collapse of Flybe. Looks like only 9 departures today, and 41 cancelled...

Every NBO flight arrival is bussed to the arrivals terminal I believe, and I don't think there is a special First bus. So you'll have the bus wait to deal with, and then whatever is happening that...
