Looking forward to your holiday? So was I :-(

2 years wait for a summer hol,
months of saving,
then finally booked it yesterday.

Today- Airport on Fire

( news.bbc.co.uk/1/h…stm )

You can't make this stuff up.:-(


Awww.... That's really not that nice...


[color=indigo]Thats awful uiaman ((hugs)) ... had you payed full whack?[/color]

Lucky no one was hurt! But it also says flights aren't affected.

When you going uiaman? I think you'll be too late to put the fire out...

On the plus side, I've fixed you link so it's clickable.


I really do feel sorry for ya though mate... I hope you get compensated or a refund or they transfer your flight to another airport or something. You never know, that one might still be able to operate passenger flights.

Best of luck.

Also another good side is it wasn't like my holiday 2 years ago now(?) Due to SARS it got cancelled completely - that was going to be my first trip back to Hong Kong / China in 10 years!!!

Cheers for the support all!

Ah well it seems its not as bad as I first thought, Turkey wasn't named after the first case of bird flu and the bbc website says business as usual. Phew.

Bad luck SARS, did you get back there since???

Ah unlucky Workaholic, hope you get back there sometime soon

The airport fire was bad, it looked much worse on TV. Good thing they could keep the air traffic moving as well as no one being too badly injured.

Nope no chance to yet, was going to go back this summer, but change of plans....
