The rest of the travel policy is reasonable - i.e. you can usually stay at a decent hotel and eat...

Thanks for the explanation. I knew about the waiting area, I didn't know about them charging for it.

It's like a smaller version of what happens with the Uber pickup area in the LHR T5 MSCP. I...

I'm not sure which is worse: the currently layout or the previous one where fast track was shared with the families and special assistance lane. For some reason, MAN don't seem to understand what...

I think the only one I liked was called Chelsea Rose. Apart from Chatham Dockyard, on Concorde at the time, it was the only one that evoked Britishness, to my eyes. Looking at it now, it seems fussy...
