Travel tips and advice

As cabin organisation are mostly good trafficked they competence be means to assistance we unpick your channel and suggest highlights. For instance a BA organisation exhibit that if a Brit goes to New York and shows their pass in some of a large stores, they can get a discount. 

AND WHAT NOT TO ASK FOR…

Just a potion of ice 

‘We will immediately know that we have brought your possess ethanol onboard and will be examination we like a hawk prepared to take that litre of vodka or whiskey off we and keep it until a finish of a flight, Dan Air from Confessions of a Trolleydolley told MailOnline Travel.

To spin around if you’ve lost something

Don’t ask if we can call we a cab during descent
