    With all due respect mate, why are you asking us ?
    Go to a trusted travel agent or check online as i dont think any of the members on this forum will do it for you.

    If your christian name happens to be Fabio and you like football it may be wise to travel just before the world cup kicks off on 12th June to avoid the disappointment of missing England's only 3 games.

    Eva Air do a flexible return. You can book online www.evaair.com

    Change your name to Ali Al-Gazamm, wear robes and you'll sail through customs like all the similarly attired Brit passport holders

    Can we deliver canned food and warm clothing for you to take with you for the natives?

    Maybe some medical supplies since I understand the NHS contributions now go entirely on salaries and liposuction for the administrators.

    Real life experience is often useful but your answer is totally useless, this we can be sure.

    If You can work Teakdoor ,surely you can work out how to book online.
    Just ask Gravesend Dave,He could make it back to the U.K unassisted by members.

    Hope you have a biometric passport, i arrived back to the UK after New Year in Sweden.
    Gatwick at 19.25 through immigration with my new passport, scan and walk, 5mins my other half joins the queue, 49mins.

    Don't even know what a biometric passport is, i haven't contacted a trusted travel agent as i don't have one, i never go anywhere

    looked online but don't always see the details about changing dates, saw one thread which suggested etihad only charged 75$, hope that's true

    i just thought maybe some of the guys on here had experience recently having to change dates with different airlines and might of shared the pitfalls that was all

    someone told me yesterday if you change to an earlier flight than the one booked it was cheaper that extending a date so book far ahead to give yourself some leeway, don't know if that's true

    appreciate the replies
