With that much breakfast you don't need to eat again for a week.

Its orible it is!

I waited until the magic hour to check in which is 24 hours before departure then I can't get through due to technical difficulties.
then 20 minutes on hold to 'tawk' to a representative then I see back on the web site that I have a seat assignment. No choices there. Then I go through the same thing for DW. "sorry due to technical difficulties we can't check you in" So another 20 minutes on hold and a rep said your DW is checked in. She is seated right behind me. Can't be changed????

Cheers

Update. The rep in the call centre in India was so much better. Problem solved, we get to sit together and DW gets to sit on an isle seat like she wanted.

3 hours of frustration.

What I learned about seating. Some seats don't recline? Some seats have equipment under them so you can't put your feet under the seat in front of you. That includes all the seats in the centre section.

If you are at the rear of a section your seat won't recline cos there is no room for it to recline into.
Perfect (as far as I'm concerned) wish all seats were like that. I'm so tired of people in front of me dumping their seat back as far as possible in one go, regardless of the person behind them (me) who may well have a drink on their table. Every trip home I end up with at least one wine bottle going over

Seats which don't recline, and seats with equipment under them do vary from airline to airline and from plane to plane - not all centre seats have this issue
(rant over!)

Your post count updates every time you post
If you go back to your first ever post (which at the time would've said 1, it'll now say 2,709.

My post count is currently 77,683 - on my reply above to Cheers. When I post this though it will become 77,684 - and that will appear on ALL my posts.
When I post again somewhere else all my posts will reflect the new count, 77,685.

When you reply to this message your post count will update to 2,710

Rodney.
Well ... I checked my Lotto numbers this morning ... the first three lucky numbers were the same as the first three numbers in my first draw ... I thought "Wow, looking good" ... but that was it.

So I've won a tenner (Does it still count as winning when you get back less than you bet?)

Euromillions are on Friday.
