First Class Male... extra leg room every time!

BRIAN OGLE checks out Eastern European carrier Ukraine Airlines (UIA)

I HAD an unusual but pleasurable flying experience recently... making one of my somewhat infrequent visits to an airport on the UK Mainland I took what I thought was a step back in time.

I was handed my flight ‘tickets’, two old fashioned traditional cardboard Boarding Passes at the Check-in desk. Having been used to printing out an A4 page for online check-in by budget airlines for the last two or three years, the unexpected reunion with a time when airline travel was enjoyable and the old style Boarding Pass, brought a spring to my step on the way to the Gatwick departure gate, accompanied by a feeling of anticipation - a rare enough emotion at an airport these days. Even better, each of my two boarding passes had a seat number!

There’s nowhere more romantic than the Seine by moonlight...

By Fiona McIlwaine Biggins

SPRINGTIME in Paris – that was where we decided to round off our special short break. And everyone knows there is simply nowhere more romantic than strolling along the River Seine in the moonlight or taking in the famous sights of one of Europe's best loved cities.



Putting on the style....

Orient Express journey a rail birthday milestone... BY FIONA McILWAINE BIGGINS

A ‘ONE OFF’ trip of a lifetime to mark a milestone birthday... That was what my husband Richard and I had set out to create when we were planning our recent trip to our favourite city - Paris. However, with only five days of holiday to play with, it needed to be something short but special.
