Re: Are airlines tracking YOU?

Most websites are tracking you all the time unless you take the trouble (& difficulty) to opt out via their privacy notice.

Checked with Skyscanner return flight to Tallin in Estonia Direct over Xmas. Price showed €120 with Ryanair. On the Ryanair website the basic was priced €75

Re: Best Airline For The Disabled

Buit is it not the airport each end rather than the airline which is responsible for conveying, and looking after, people with disabilities? Absolutely. Larnaca is better set up than Pafos. At Pafos the Disability check-in/waiting area is in itself disabled! Heathrow terminal 5 I found excellent. A...

Re: EU Commission ask Cyprus to fully comply with EU rules to protect consumers from unfair contract terms

2013 & it's now 2019 and nothing has changed, so don't hold your breath! In all likelihood there's too much vested interest by those at the top.

I hope the AG raises this lenient sentence as an injustice & seeks to have it reviewed, as he has done on a previous occasion.

Re: Two and a half years for man who killed Briton in hit-and-run

Two & a half years sentence, but with good behaviour, will be out much sooner! Where was the justice> That sentence was utterly disgraceful and did not in any way fit the crime and the death of an innocent man! :x

Many years ago, one tabloid headline read "Queen to have Fergie for Christmas lunch".
My comment was "And the rest of us have turkey for our lunch".

Re: Rain early this morning.. 15.7. strange

The rain was so welcome. It both cleaned the everything and cleared the stuffiness of the past few weeks. Nice cool (26deg) morning air. :)
