    You really do need to catch the train. That should be cheap enough at the moment. And if you want to fly somewhere do a weekend in Glasgow, Edinburgh or even somewhere in Europe....
    It's 8 miles, about half an hour, hardly the other side of the country.

    Unless you are working in Heathrow the time to get to and from the airports is going to be the same as catching the train.

    Up to you though personally given where we are meeting flying is insane...

    Itís your call, and if you need the BA points of course itís worth it, but itís a pain in the arse to get to, itís a single road unless you go cross country and it snarls up like no modus Business, there is one bus service which goes via Bradford before Leeds and taxis are a monopoly so youíll be paying through the nose (will probably cost you more than the flight), also depending on when you are setting off again in the morning itís just as bad.

    How can we recognize the CUKers in the Bar?
    Don't argue with idiots. They'll drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Just look for a bunch of misfits that you would never expect to see sharing a pint. That'll be the northern contingent. The southerners will have one drink each and it'll have an umbrella in it

    I'm close to Heathrow and could arrange to work from there that day, no problem. I might even charge them for the pleasure of my company. £44 each way to fly.

    The flights to Belfast was always fun, a plane so small that when it crashed the newspapers could name all the dead passengers!

    It was much worse when the two seater plane crashed into a cemetery just outside Belfast. Three hours after the crash, the investigators had recovered 197 bodies and expected to be searching throughout the night.
