It's good news as it gives some certainty past 11pm on Dec 31st, with the added twist of something may happen or it might not happen at some point in the future. Maybe.

Very late to the party on this one, but after such a long time not flying I was looking at plane porn and finally noticed this. I loved the -900 headrests. So simple yet so comfortable. I'd be really...

LGW was a great service that I took 3 times once I found out about it. The A350 was the big drawcard over the cramped and old B777s. Has there been any announcement if the A350 will pick up one of...

But it will also make people think of getting bang for their pound. I can spend X flying to Y at Z per mile but if I spend a little more, I can go so much further.

Great tool!

Agreed and if you've been stuck overseas desperate to get home, I think missing xmas will be a small price to pay (along with the hefty hotel bill!)
