Thanks Craig, although unfortunately I don't have Sky/Sky Digital, and I'm in Argentina now anyway! Who's the focus of "Airline" this time? I did prefer "Airport" though, especially our legendary man from Aeroflot, Jeremy Spake.

Oh and to L1011Alpha: I think the times are British Summer Time, so GMT+1.

Here's the answers to your questions.


The times are in a 24 hour clock format. So 20.45-21.15 means 8.45 to 9.15 in the evening. 20.20-21.15 means 8.20 to 9.15 in the evening. I hope this helps. Btw. The times are British so they might not be the same in your country.


unfortunately it is Easyjet getting featured again. I wish they would change it, maybe back to Britannia or Air 2000, British Midland... I've not seen Jeremy in the latest series of airport yet. I don't know if he's in the series at all. I suppose I'll just have to wait and see.
