Remember the Snow?

Feb 1st, 2011 | By

Last November and December there was snow. It caused untold disruption to travel and in particular to air travel. Airport after airport was closed, sometimes for short periods and, in the case of one large West London airport, for days. If it affected you then the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) would like to hear from you.
Why?
Because they are running a two week online survey to see what you the traveler thought of it all. Were you kept informed? Were you told your rights? Did the problems cause you to see the best in the way that people responded to it.



And the Snow Falls…And Falls

For the last week or so, there has been snowfall over much of the eastern side of the UK. It has been unrelenting in places with stories of the lowest temperatures since records began and the usual heroic tales of the ability of people to get to work. For the traveller, this has been trying and much is made of the fact that other countries are prepared so why aren’t we? Is this fair criticism?
By tomorrow morning Gatwick will have been closed for 3 days. Why should this happen to one of the most important airports in the world let alone this country?
