    ^^ Yes, AO, I'll do what I can. But of course I'll run out of interest and won't have the time... this is what the airlines rely on, I guess. And at the end of the day, at some point in the future, I'll doubtlessly fly on Lufthansa again when I need to...

    ^ Thanks Katie, and I'll have a Ya Dong in your honour at the weekend!

    You'll recognise her as she's 5' 8" and 195Kgs and black as the ace of spades.

    When I get home I'll take the time to put a well crafted missive together and then send it multiple places.

    I've often wondered why Ed calls 'her' Noi, to be honest.

    Everyone else calls him Winston.

    she's a squeeze through the door and a nightmare to get back through in a hurry.

    ^ You may be surprised...

    No farms of course, but the small west coast town I've worked in, on and off for 30 years, has a huge drug problem. At one point Haugesund had the highest number of herion users in Europe, per capita... but I have no links or evidence. Just what I hear.

    Personally, I think it's down to an extremely regulated and structured upbringing, shite climate and too much available money... and of course the eye-watering cost of alcohol.

    I've never yet met a Norwegian who enjoys a quiet pint... they either drink a coke or get smashed.

    Mendip, for next time you fly Lufthansa, from today's Guardian.

    Grounded! What to do in an airport if your flight is delayed by one, three, six or 12 hours | Travel | The Guardian

    Grounded! What to do in an airport if your flight is delayed by one, three, six or 12 hours

    Travel chaos is leaving many passengers stuck in departures for what seems like forever. But apart from endlessly climbing the walls what can you do to keep yourself occupied and your kids from climbing the walls?
    This was supposed to be a glorious summer. With Covid largely diminished, it was going to be the first year since 2019 where we would all get to pack our suitcases and jet off to warmer climes. Clearly, that hasn’t happened.

    There are several factors at play here. The cost-of-living crisis in the UK has put foreign travel out of the reach of many; the rail strikes have made getting to the airport more difficult; a new wave of Covid has stopped people from leaving their homes and – most importantly – airports themselves are an absolute nightmare.

    Around 5,000 Heathrow passengers have had their flights cancelled as a result. Additionally, staff shortages mean that Gatwick will be running up to 50 fewer flights a day throughout the summer months, with EasyJet alone cutting 11,000 flights. And, just to make things even more interesting, British Airways check-in staff may strike next month. In other words: the chances of finding yourself stranded at the airport are impossibly high.

    So, what can you do? The sensible thing would be to stay at home but, failing that, here’s a handy guide to killing time at an airport………….

I have around 12 consecutive emails from Lufthansa announcing each delay... yet the obligatory 'How did we do?' email that every airline bombards you with after a flight these days is noticeably missing. They also lied on two occasions about having staff waiting to sort us out at Munich, and they also lied about having re-booked Bangkok bound passengers on the next day's Lufthansa flight to Bangkok (poor bastards) or the Thai flight... neither myself or Pon had a re-booked flight. Lying bastards.



    Is it just me, or after all his whining about Brexit, does anyone else feel a smug sense of schadenfreude... as the Krauts call it?

    scha·den·freu·de
    /ˈSHädənˌfroidə/
    Learn to pronounce
    noun
    pleasure derived by someone from another person's misfortune.
    "a business that thrives on schadenfreude"

    I've seen this word used a lot lately so decided to see what it means.

    Brexit or not Reg, irrelevant to this, the airlines will fuck you over. Wait until your trip to Thailand next winter. I won't be schadenfreudering you when yer stuck at Brummie International for three days cos the baggage handlers have gone out in sympathy with the truck drivers.

    Or maybe I will.

    I just popped over the outdoor looking for a couple of bottles of Munich brewed Lowenbrau.

    Loads of Polish tosh in there but nothing German... bar a fukkin 'alcoholfrei' Erdinger.
