Rumor saying MT1107 is grounded at JSI as cant pay for fuel. Passengers stranded. Certainly something up as LGW showing next info 0900. I believe the operating aircraft had to divert to Corfu and looks to be flying back to LGW. Doesn't ZTH have a curfew? If it's missed that, it would have to be tom...Jump to post

In the UK the CAA have started the wheels moving, it is called "Operation Matterhorn". They are gathering available aircraft seats incase the banks pull the plug on Sunday.

Awesome. I have yet to get on Norweigian but it looks great. How is it for those of you that have been on? I've only been on Norwegian Epic, but the Freestyle cruising is really liberating. Having sailed with RCCL three times prior to NCL, NCL is definitely onto something with it. Can you explain f...Jump to post
I know Oceania offers in-depth lectures in science, history, geography etc. Does Holland America offer these? How does it compare to Oceania? Yes they do offer a decent "enrichment" program onboard - I think they're strongest at this in Alaska but you'll definitely be able to learn a litt...Jump to post

I sailed that ship / itinerary about 3 years ago. Was my first time sailing with Carnival and, for what I paid, thought it was excellent value. Clearly, it's an older ship with the quirks that come with that - ie Serenity hidden away and accessed through a lounge. Food was decent in quality, especia...Jump to post

Looking at Varadero Today. these are the departures. I'm curious why flights to the same destinations often seem clustered around the same time.

Rhodes. RHO Diagoras is just over 2nm from its predecessor Maritsa LGRD which seems to be still active for military and some civil aviation, but not commercial.
And that 8am JFK-LHR on a VS A346 does well. There are many pax connecting from that flight to VS’ LHR-LOS and LHR-DEL flights as they both depart late evening.

Also, just to correct you as per the OP, this thread is about all new LHR routes, not just "discussing new or extra British Airways flights from LHR for Summer 2019." Back to the topic...

The UK can unilaterally revoke Article 50, says "top EU law officer."

I've noticed VS seem keener to use BA on domestic BA connections at Heathrow. I could have sworn they'd been pushing people onto FlyBe but something seems to have changed over the past few weeks. I rarely see a BE/VS result returned, it's always BA.
It's as if some Brexiteers can't accept that Germany is doing well after losing the wars; that a country that was defeated is doing better than the victor. The fact that Germany is a major player in Europe feels like Germany has won and got the final revenge; hence why toilet papers like The Express...Jump to post
TUI increasingly targets other markets. For instance, TUI in Belgium (I know that TUI UK is a legacy from Thomson Holidays, so not exactly the same thing) flies many VFR routes and increasingly opens more.

PHL BOS and MIA don't have a link either and these are large US Metros that usually get links to a Mexican resort city before London does. Geography hurts BOS and MIA with Pacific Mexico in general.

Control the borders. EU law states that you have 3 months to be in work or study or you should return to your country of citizenship (I'm paraphrasing). We chose to not implement.

Not everyone uses the metric system. Wrong. at least for length units. the inch/foot/yard thingies .. today reference the meter for their definition.
