Just heard that British prime ministers Tony Blair´s plane got spoiled yesterday when he wanted to go to Spain. Do you know what kind of plane was it? maybe BAe-146 or VC-10. They said he had to take a regular flight, wondering why they hadn´t a spare plane there.

"Ahhh yes! The Iron Lady. Bring back Maggie and that would certainly start Saddam shaking in his boots!"
Damn straight! She didn't bat an eyelash over all the crap she got about going to war with Argentina over the Falklands. They got their butts kicked and deservedly so! Served them right for taking the islands WHILE Britain was negotiating on turning them over to Argentina, anyway. WHAT were they thinking?

figured Blair has his own Ba 777....I wonder why not a Virgin a340 or 744?
Because flying BRITISH Ariways has more of an impact for the BRITISH PM than flying Virgin, or any of the other carriers..
I guess it could be argued he could fly bmi; but bmi aren't the flag carrier, so that ends that discussion
Im glad he flies BA and Not VS; if you dont have your own VIP aircaft, fly your national flag carrier to make the same impact.
