Well that was different I'll give you that!
One thing - I wouldn't expect to see any SQ branding at MAN at 15:30 seeing as their flight leaves around 10am. Trust me the desks are always nicely branded when the flight is checking in
Oh and did you really think you could get into the lounge without a *A gold card or were you just trying it on? Sorry to break it to you but SQ is no more important than any other airline in the airline alliance for earth.

Mr Picky notes that British Midland Airways is not a publicly quoted company but is actually a private limited company, hence British Midland Airways plc should actually read British Midland Airways Ltd.

I travelled on BD591 two days ago on Monday 17 April.
I booked my ticket at the end of January and I did receive an email from BMI notifying me of the change of departure time of this flight so I'm not sure why you did not get the same message if you booked online.

Sorry but this was extremely dull but given your reputation I gave the whole thing a read. Did you really need to give us audio transcripts of every flight that happened to leave whilst you were waiting for yours? Everyone has been to an airport and heard a boarding announcement before...
I'm aware you are a fan of SQ and all this but do are you really hamming it up with:
-Trying it on in the lounge with the SQ blue card nonsense
-The pic of the CEO at the end
-All the 'in the spirit of Singapore Airlines' nonsense.

You forgot to thank your parents, God, Airbus, ATC, BAA, bmi engineering, the CAA, the National Grid and a few others.
What's with all the SQ bits and pieces, and using their logo? And the disclaimer? Errrrm... Nothing of interest to take from the toilet? Delight at scuffed carpets? Disgusted by a timetable with a small scribble? The SQ CEO portrait? You seem slightly too obsessed!
The most detailed and... 'unique' trip report I've ever read here...

Different, thats for sure. I was a bit confused at whether you should be flying SQ or BMI?????? Do you write down EVERY announcement over the P.A system, if so i think you may need to see someone and WTF is with the picture of the CEO of SQ?
You are one die hard SQ fan,
Thanks for a laugh and a good read.....
