Less impact from turbulence is one reason, but most importantly the ability to get to the front of the queue at immigration (assuming they don't bus you of course).

Oh yes, you are right - the second test is 4-5 days after the first one, not after arrival. That is a nuance I had missed, but I suspect most people, like me, will see the words quarantine and...

I suspect it was the hotel being shut, not the FCO advice as they are quite happy to fly passengers to lots of places that are on the Donít Travel list, just at their own risk. Did they tell you that...

And how do you get a test turned around within 48 hours of departure?!

Even this private clinic in Harley Street isn’t guaranteeing more than 72 hour turnaround, and they are explicit that they...

I have both as well and am minded to cancel the HSBC card. What do you mean by an endless cycle - I thought you only got the HSBC bonus for spending in the first year, not every year?

The sad reality is that staff are a variable cost, while assets (and capex) is a fixed cost. This means it is much easier to lay off staff and re-hire different (or the same) people when they are...

Indeed. I am married to an American so I am an exemption from the Donald's executive order. And we are going to see family, not for tourism.

Will BA spot this and cancel one of my bookings?

We are looking at booking Avios flights to Seattle, which for our dates are currently shown as operated by 787-10.

Indeed. The risk of being quarantined because I was seated near someone allowed to fly without pre-testing has put me off thinking about a return to BGI early next year.

Does anyone know if ANU is...
