Re: Please help- nightmare getting hold of anybody

Hi

Sorry not to have logged back in to say thanks: I was out of the country for a bit, and also I couldn't remember my password.

Re: Please help- nightmare getting hold of anybody

Sorry, I'm a tool: I should have said that I'm in London, UK.

Hi

Re: Sadly having to withdraw

I did do a search, but it's hard to know what to look for. I searched under "withdraw", "break up", "partner" etc.

The other thing is that I'm just not sure I could afford it on my own. The...

Re: Sadly having to withdraw

But the application I've submitted wouldn't be valid for one person, though, would it? I'd still have to withdraw and start again, I think?

Sadly having to withdraw

Firstly, hi to anybody who remembers me. I haven't posted for a long time now because I haven't been able to face this place. My relationship of well over a decade ended in the summer, which means...

Re: My landing experience, the cats journey, 1st week...

Oh, I'm so pleased that it went well, especially with your cat. I'm so worried about taking my own cats on that route one day so it's lovely to read reassuring stories!

Re: to all those flying with globespan

I'm not sure what you mean? People who are "flying with Globespan" presumably have tickets already, so how would that help? No refunds these days.

Re: Should I stay or should I go? .... again

Good advice has already been given, but I just wanted to add that I seriously don't think CHC would look kindly on being asked to hang on for a year. Either you want PR or you don't, and they don't...

Canpickle, can you remember if the seat layout in Premium Economy was groups of two at the sides, by the way? If we end up in a 3 after all I will... well, I will be very British, and by god will I...

Re: flyglobespan

Oh god, I really am SO looking forward to this most luxurious of flights. FFS. Is it illegal to take laptops in the cabin, now? I may need one to beat the flight attendants to death.

Re: flyglobespan

Yes, I did this last time I flew to Vancouver, and as you say it's great to have those groups of two seats. Made the flight a lot more bearable, as long as you don't sit too near the loos of course!...

I love Yaletown and hope to live there one day, but it is expensive.

Kitsilano is ok but a bit more hippy-dippy. I don't like it as much but I do remember it being cheaper, so that would probably...

Re: flyglobespan
