There are now road signs from the airport to "Expo 2020", so I wouldn't be surprised if the new terminal opened just ahead of the Expo (as I have been saying all along).

You can get a bassinet in business! It's in some of the seats that have windows, but which aren't right up against the window. They kind of attach it to the wall on the window side of the seat. My...

I'm in the room now, and it's nice enough, but I can't say it has the wow factor of other suites I've stayed in. The pics on the website are pretty much it, so I can't work out how it has so many...

I'm staying there tomorrow night, and although I booked a very basic room using points, I've just found out that we have been upgraded to a Junior King Sea View Suite with access to the exec club. I...

I've heard rumours that there are so many legal wranglings going on that it's not going to open any time soon.

I live almost directly opposite this hotel, and took a drive past it today. It seems VERY unlikely that it will be in a position to open on March 14th - it's still a big mess. Is this date set in...

When I flew last month (LHR-AUH) they werenít weighing any hand luggage, but theyíre enforcing the backpack only rule pretty strictly. Anything else gets checked in.

Intending to come back again, but I am very fortunate in being able to be completely flexible about whether we stay in the UK for a while longer or not.

Oh and the toilets - there seemed to be only one available in J, as one of them was designated for staff only, and there were often long waits. We were not supposed to get up and queue (according to...

Exactly.

It's definitely not opening any time soon, and they will definitely want it open around Expo time. They won't want to lose face to Dubai.

There is still a lot of work going on on site. My guess is it will be opening around Expo 2021 or I will eat my hat live on here.

Nope, no way they will open it this year. That sort of logic is not widely applied in this part of the world anyway. They have been desperate to find an excuse not to open it and now they have one.

I think itís the perfect excuse to stall the opening even further. They are reluctant to open it anyway because of all the troubles that EY has suffered. I canít see it opening any time soon.

Interesting video on aircraft maintenance while parked up

Thought this was quite interesting - I keep meaning to take a drive past the airport to see what it looks like with 80+ planes parked up.

They are deep cleaning and refreshing all their cabins:...

I've found heaps of 15,000 or less stays at English properties just through the normal search function - are these point breaks, or are they always this cheap?
For example, the new Voco in Solihull...

My first time checking this out and there are literally only about 20 hotels showing outside of the US. Am I missing something? Or am I just 15 mins late to the party?
