Time Event
7:15a
UK -> USA travel SNAFU
As some of you may have heard, the UK has "broken" an alleged plot to blow up a number of planes in the air, using explosives (probably liquids) hand carried onto the planes. Just to make sure, they are restricting just about all hand items from planes out of the UK.

I've posted more detailed comments in a thread started by Geri Sullivan:

(I'm in the UK at the moment and thankfully not flying back until next Friday 18 August.)

Heathrow Update ...
The bus (555/556/557 if you are keeping track) from Ashford back to Heathrow this (Thursday) evening was uneventful. We had no problems or delays getting into Heathrow Terminal 4 where I normally get off. This time I actually continued on to Hatton Cross and then Harlington Corner (for the real Heathrow Geeks) to meet someone for dinner at the Sheraton Skyline. There were no problems at all. In fact, traffic was lighter than usual.

Except in the other direction. While there was a long line of trucks waiting to get onto the airfield. They were mostly FlightGournet / SkyChiefs trucks. So, I think that answers the question of whether flights are still being catered with food and drink. It appears they are.

Metro Meme
only 12???Collapse )

And they are missing two that I have been on: Dusseldorf and Kyoto.

I'm only including ones I have been on since college, since the 5 weeks in Europe during the summer after my junior year are pretty much a blur.
