Obviously someone who wasn't too tight to pay for the extra legroom. Anyway, the crew should move a toddler away from the exit seats as they also do for the elderly and infirm. A toddler can't open the exit.

Also, airlines don't charge an extra ton for the exit seats. Certainly BA don't and I fly with them to Bulgaria.

Most airlines let you select a seat for free up to 24 hours before departure. I generally find that there is the odd exit seat to be found. You do need to know the layout of the plane as well.

It's this new app for your phone where you run around in real life looking for Pokemon. But, for those of us who don't care for such things, what it means is a whole heap of ****wits walking through the streets with their heads buried in their phones without a care for how many people they bump into.

Coleman for Manager thread. We don't need a new manager and when we do it better not be him

Nope. Maybe a close 2nd, but no cigar.

Sorry

That not a single England player knows the national anthem. The line is 'God save The Queen'. Not 'God save our Queen'.

Also - our national anthem. It's bullshit.

It is very very bullshit. I'm not keen on being ultra patriotic but in the the odd moments when I feel that our country has something to be proud of I want to listen to something that relates to it, not to some figurehead whose relationship to England beyond feudalistic tax extortion is tenuous.

Are there any other countries where the National Anthem is all about the nominal Head of State rather than the country itself?

Genuine question...

andyocpfc 11-07-2016 02:15 PM

Wasn't there some talk that it could be changed?
