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.

Do you mean it had a technical problem, or that someone damaged it on purpose?

Never mind...Different aircraft.


I don't think the PM would be running around on Air France.


Maggie certainly wouldn't be.

Indeed. She absolutely hated being called "Maggie", so naturally enough everyone in Britain started to refer to her that way...! Big grin


She's as nervous as a very small nun at a penguin shoot.

I call her the "Poll tax fanatic"  Big grin

Getting back to the topic, i doubt it was a BA 777, short-haul european visits would probably mean a BA A320 or a 146, something along those lines.



In Arsene we trust!!

I figured Blair has his own Ba 777....I wonder why not a Virgin a340 or 744?

"In the end an embarrassed Mr Blair and his senior aides managed to squeeze on to the last scheduled British Airways flight from Heathrow to the Spanish capital."

This Is London.Com

British Airways flight BA0462 from London Heathrow to Madrid departed 29 minutes late at 1929 and arrived 18 minutes late at 2233.

Aircraft was Airbus Industrie A320



Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

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?

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  Smile

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.
