    Alas I meant it wasn’t one profession but a universal aviation strike (rather than general aviation in the biz jet meaning).
    Looks like now it’s limited to 60,000 ground handling and ops staff walking out, where as before it was rumoured controllers, pilots and security staff were also going to wade in

    Not that this improves things: no ground handling staff and you don’t go.

    I wish. Sadly it's 'commercial' and I'll be sitting in Alicante airport with thousands of others watching the sun come out having spent 5 days on my boat in the rain!

    If you would have a bizjet waiting for you, more than likely you should just use it to "go back and sit around listening to people talking about mezzanine financing and subordinated debt, pretending that you care about dead money". Now, guess who am I quoting?
    Much better not having to go back at all, imho...

    But the alternative is waiting to board surrounded by hen and stag parties on their way to Benidorm. Most of whom will already have downed a few pints in the bar!

    Point taken.
    But still, it's worth keeping in mind Edward's statement above (and its context), when thinking that having a bizjet is a bed of roses...

    Good Friday update from Cala DOr - its bloody miserable here! Woke up to rain this morning and its not really improved since - thick cloud and windy - the sea stare at the entrance to Cala DOr has to be seen to be believed!

    We are sat in our apartment with the heating on and windows shut listening to people on BBC Radio 2 taking about arranging bbqs.

    Happy Days
