Google Flights can be a good indicator. It is a quick way of comparing what a range of airlines charge, and it indicates whether fares in general for that day are high or low in terms of what is...

I assume there wasn't a moving map. But the sun would have been on the right of the plane, low over the horizon at that time, if they were flying north. Surely someone would have suspected that...

Yes - nationality is irrelevant. When you buy tax free goods you don't have to show your passport, only your boarding card. If you fly within the EU, any discounts you may be given are effectively...
