    4. – Another vote for YellowFish – used them a few times and they provided child seats as part of the door to door service when we travelled with grandchildren.

    As noted you may just need to wait for it to be ticketed but as you are outbound in F you can call YouFirst and ask if you want. Also could be worth waiting a little and maybe setting up a SeatSpy alert in case F becomes available for the return rather than booking seats asap unless you have a specific need

    Just for info re CFU – Went through in mid June on way to the ferry / islands and it was very busy with queues out onto the tarmac on arrival and queues out the door for check-in. Looked like TUI were holding bus loads of passengers in lines outside the terminal and heard them calling flights at the check in desks for people stuck in the queues. Also heard someone saying that people were passing out in the queue so be prepared

    in reply to: Favour please – checking availability

    If only there was a way of checking without a voucher….

    Thanks in advance.

    There is… Seatspy

    I don’t think that Seatspy can “see” the additional class that the new voucher may have access to and likewise isn’t there some extra availability starting from the regions somehow which again I’m not sure Seatspy can show

    in reply to: A novice in Paris – advice please

    That’s not enough time to get to Paris and back again with enough time to do anything and as noted by LL there are all sorts of risks especially with the pensions unrest.
    Someone did comment a while back about just getting out of the airport for a spot of lunch but can’t remember where they said to go but if the weather is ok when you land then a spot of lunch on a terrace somewhere could be an option.


    They have an online shop where you can spend points and I think you can do points + cash for some things so might be something you need / want / could give at Christmas if delivery is quick

    I’ve just received the same. I did some redemptions a few days ago so assumed that was the trigger. Looks like they took the total miles from my account then I have transfers from player 2s account so maybe that’s triggered the email as player 2 usually flies with anybody but BA so doesn’t have much activity

    in reply to: Erroneous email “you collected 0 Avios”

    I got the zero email even though I have points showing in the app so assumed just more of their shoddy tech.

    in reply to: Las Vegas time-killing

    Not sure what its like at present as everyone is travelling and prices are high for standard rentals but lots of more interesting car rental options in Vegas if you like driving and want to visit a few places outside the city


    They did say they were discontinuing cash payments and dropping the Giro paying in slip on statements so maybe there are some other impacts to payments
