More and more I am getting the feeling that some airlines would rather I took my business elsewhere.



If you want a punctual flight use…

Jan 9th, 2017 | By

Late last week we reported on the OAG study of punctuality at airports. The same study also looked at punctuality at airlines so which should you choose if you want an on-time landing in the jargon of air travel? Flybe comes out as the most punctual of the British and Irish airlines achieving a punctuality rate of 86.62% of flights being on time.

Compensation for the Volcanic Ash

Lobbying is going on behind the scenes to get the EU law changed.
