"Add to the list of stealth travel costs, the airports which charge drivers for dropping off passengers. There's no real cost to the airport, it's just price gouging"

Cartels in all their disgusting glory.

Did I read or hear somewhere about tap water not being available on aircraft, but an overpriced bottle of water was? 

 


@Minivanman How does one get the water mains to the aircraft in flight, then?Funny

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Some holiday firms charge 2% and we all know the cost of holidays.

One airline was planning to charge a £1 for the use of the toilets on the aircraft but never introduced it as they realised some men might think of alternative solutions like one well known french actor


I see problems with that charge if mechanism not upgraded for the new coin. Is there room for a parking style meter?

"Options: standing £1. sitting £1.50. Anyone who poays £1 and then making a solid deposit (metered) will be subject to a penalty of £50"Crazy.

You are sadly mistaken

All Plusnet need to do is the same as my utility company - increase the charges by £1.50 and introduce a discount for paying by direct debit


What are the chances of Plusnet amending their accounting system in this manner without making some sort of malechicken-up?

You do realise that this isn't coming in until January and we are assured that the new system will be operating this year so I reckon that will be the least of their worries
