    Jet2 invested heavily at Blackpool airport. We'd fly to Turkey and Tenerife from there whenever possible. The beginning of the end for Blackpool was when a Jet2 flight returning from abroad somewhere had to divert to Manchester because Blackpool had closed and customs and baggage staff had gone home.
    Passengers had to be bussed back.

    It's now just a General Aviation airfield. The terminal building was the first thing to get bulldozed.

    Clowns.

    Was the flight on time?

    If it was late it looked like a choice of put yourself out and do some overtime or shut up shop, go home and put your jobs at risk. Looks like they may have taken the latter option.

    Good to see yet another country subscribing to a dark ages belief system taking civil rights seriously.

    I think it was running a bit late.

    The owners of the airport were Balfour Beatty, who eventually pulled the plug due to "operating costs". They say the numbers didn't stack up. We (the community it served) say that their only interest in the site was for future redevelopment. No chance of that because it was getting every busier and more popular as an airport.

    Barbaric cockwombles.

    Egypt's been off my "OK to visit" list for quite some time, which is a shame as the people I've met have all been lovely and it's them and their ilk who suffer if I don't spend my money there.
    Happy to be a woke* feminist SJ(K)W snowflake in a godless universe, no matter what some experts think. And Braun was a twat who's not missed. At all.

    * Had to add woke; couldn't resist.

    Me, too. But when you look at how divers spend their money and the regimes they have been happy to fund, like Egypt, Maldives, Seychelles and Cuba, we are definitely a minority. If North Korea had decent resorts, divers would put money in their pocket without a second thought.

    Dodgy hygiene or dropping an anchor on a reef and divers will go ape shit. Lock a woman up for having sex, have executions without trial or use torture as a normal part of the justice system? Never mind... does the resort do nitrox?

    I know, spending money in the country always improves things...
