  • Much of the screening nonsense could be avoided by:1. Having more staff on duty2. Training staff how to use the equipment, and making sure it is calibrated properly.  There should be international standards for this, so that what passes in one airport is not rejected at another.  That j...

  • Indeed it would.  I did Berlin to London back in 2018.  Left Berlin at 7am and arrived in London at 4pm.  Took three trains with changes in Cologne and Brussels.  It was a long day and I still had to get across London on the underground to Waterloo and out to Walton-on-Thames,...

  • All very nice I'm sure, but I'll bet any money there will be no extra leg room, and cattle class will still be a trial not to be endured.  I'll stick with Economy X on Virgin thank you.  It will be a golden opportunity to provide a whole new customer cetric service offering, but knowing...
