Re: Chronic Sinusitis

Fluticasone propionate nose spray. Excellent stuff. It cured my cronic sinusitis within two days. This was back in March 2015 and the funny thing is, I've had only one or two head colds since then.

Re: Should BA switch to CS300 on the LCY-JFK route?

For the first part, IAG would need to have the CSeries on order. For the second part, as another member pointed out, the BD-500-1A11 is not yet capable of landing at LCY. However, considering Airbus was able to certify the similar sized A318 to win a 2 plane order, I don't see what would prevent Bo...
