They often siezed if the aircon isn't used... They very rarely run otherwise  ;)

The engines are bigger than the earlier ones, hence NEO... New Engine Options ;) slightly longer/beefed up landing gear to allow for the extra engine weight.

These engines are significantly quieter on the ground than the older ones thanks to much larger hairdryer attachment on the front of them :D

Talking of buses, HI Flys ex Singapore A380 is currently based here... Mostly to bolster Norwegians long haul operation.

39.85 at mine. And 30 to any OOF member who wants one 😁😁😁

I know that when we put online MOTs at under that we got less interest. Probably to do with people thinking that we'd try and do them (not the case but new customers don't know that).

I also know dodgy outfits like Halfords and quickfit fail and charge for headlight aiming etc.
Do you need the car?  :D

Talking of bicyclists, ALL the roads around here are being closed for a whole day meaning that I will only be able to drive to work via the A3 via Havant or the A23 via Arundel, Worthing and Hove >:(

So that will be a day in a hotel at work as it's between shifts >:(
Not tempted to cycle to work, then? ;)
Driving via Hove would probably be quicker ;D

It's a bit like saying 'my lawn doesn't go stripey when I mow it'. You'll be offered101 suggestions as each one doesn't quite work. Then finally, you mention that you use a goat instead of a roller mower, and, by the way a whole family of moles live under it.

If you believe that the chip is the root of your issues, fit a stock ecu and report back... ;)

An extra 60-70 people added to the bunfight for the best seats. Oh, joy!   :D
They only do allocated seats ;)

I have and will never fly on Ryanair. Ever. Even if the alternative involved the most horrific things I could think of.

No issues with Easyjet. Always sit in the window seat one row forward of the over wing exit. Never run out of food/drink going to/from Gran Canaria. And quite happy to be last on, even if it means kicking someone out of my seat. And will wait to be last off because running off a plane to join the queue into the building/immigration etc is retarded. And having worked with the assistance people, I usually get a lift all the way through anyways  :D

Expecting food on the aircrafts fourth+ sector is madness... Get there early enough to use lounge/leisurely breakfast cost of either is the same by the time you have eaten and had a few drinks. If you don't want to do that, go to Boots and buy a sandwich meal deal or two for the flight.

Remember that Speedy Boarding = Speedy Queuing and you won't go far wrong, Certainly not worth paying for and if your carry on won't fit under the seat in front then check it in.

This travel malarkey doesn't need to be stressful or complicated  ::)

The trolley will be 40. Using a different garage to last test which was full price, yet still charge 80 an hour, provided the work isn't difficult... They will gladly charge 500+ to do discs and pads on a Corrola >:(

Especially if this is the same garage that replaced the head gaskets for something to do :-X

orange plane lands at airport .....  :-\  :-\

 ::)
Specifically an nice shiney new A321, which is actually a mould breaker for Easyjet, as larger(longer) aircraft never quite fitted the speedy boarding concept... Specifically an extra 60-70 people to disembark/board in the same turnaround window.

They've been umming and aahing for at least two years, having previously dumped the ones that they inherited from GB Airways.

Like I said, one for the geeks :P
