They were a bit boxy. Weird seating arrangement too, one row had two seats, and the other only one. I got a seat by myself on one of the flights as far as I remember.

Latest news is that a deal to save Flybe has been 'brokered'. I'm unsure what that means, since it sounds a bit like Albert Pierrepoint asking your collar size.

Maybe Boris' girlfriend has got a deal on it?

Man, you guys really hate the little 360 don't you? If it makes you feel any better, they were built in Belfast. It's not like Belfast managed to build the only unsinkable liner that sank or anything, right? Right?

Very nice place Belfast too. I spent New Year with friends in Newtonabbey. Great views of the city across the lough.

Joking aside (and if you ignore some quite widespread dereliction in some of the less focused areas of the city centre), it really is a nice place. Newtownabbey isn't too far from where I grew up actually. My old high school is next to the University of Ulster campus in Jordanstown.

Turning all our white towels orange as an orange shirt that had never been washed got put in without noticing, 3 washes in with bleach and towels are losing their orange coloration so at least they wont be this weird orange hopefully.

So long as you don't start parading in the street in your orangery, you'll be fine. Cats excepted.

You can get washing additives which will remove the dye, don't affect the normal colours either.
