UK snarled ?

Interesting to read that the BAA is using the BP pr playbook.

Good grief...
Can't the BAA get people to the trains to get to the Continent ?

Hook of Holland -> Harwich ferry? Cabins nicer than a lot of hotel rooms, and free wireless Internet the entire trip.

Managed a great escape from Germany, flew briefly into Vienna, then into Zurich. Hopefully from here to blighty in a couple of hours.

Yeah, well.. the reason I've done this scenic route is to avoid Heathrow as it's FUBAR, London City Airport seems ok right now

And what is it with Europe and wifi fees, I must have burnt 150 euro, moving from country to country, and wtf have 2 price scales, 1hr or 30days. Its organised crime... oh and my t-mobile 30 day pass is restricted to only use in Germany!! Fuckers.

Re: UK snarled ?

We flew in and out Czech Republic when Gatwich was closed.

We went Stanstead to BRNO. BRNO make John Lennon look like Heathrow. Keighley bus station with a runway.

Didn't really see much snow until we got to CZ where it was piled up in the streets and it just kept coming. When we left it was minus ten in middle of the afternoon. BRNO is a very quiet little airport. There was a hop over from Egypt on the way to Prague and a flight to Moscow which which were both on time as was ours.
