Delays at Sharm el-Sheikh (SSH) for a specific date

Hi,

Can anyone tell me where to find info on delays at Sharm el-Sheikh (SSH) for the 19th of March?
Or does anyone know if there was heavy delays and cancellation of flights due to a sandstorm on that date, the 19th of March?
I'm not able to find any info regarding this.

Thanks in advance.

Sometimes when its a large number of shots fired authorities mistakenly make that assumption, but then it turns out to a lone shooter....

True, but in this case on different locations.

Re: Ad Blockers

Easiest way to get rid of ads, as already mentioned, is to install AdBlock Plus. Works like a charm and I have been using it for 2 years now. I have no issue with ads on Anet as they are blocked out.

RE: Exchange Euro At BKK Airport

It's funny actually as on level B you have all these exchange booths stacked together. I think it's about 6-7 of them. So it's actually worth checking their rates before deciding which one you want to use. As they are all wall to wall or opposite to each other your done checking rates in 1 minutes.
