Piss poor edit. It was weak enough the first time.


#1385

You get paid for a corporate jolly, and don’t have to work all day.
I had to take leave to do this.


#1386

Stage 5.
Weak enough for you?


#1387

You poor fellow. But at least you got to travel in first class at someone else’s expense and got the chance to tell everyone about it.


#1388

Dear me.


#1389

You asked btw.
You seem to think going first class on a train is something worth bragging about.
I don’t think it is.
I wanted a seat and some grub as I had no time either end.
Anyhow, your initial comment was unnecessary in my opinion.
I’ll leave it at that.


#1390

You replied to yourself there by the way. But great to see you’re not rattled.


#1391

2 movies. Bit of work. Bit of TFK. No drop in WiFi the whole flight.

The Aer Lingus cabin crew continue to approach French waiter levels of rudeness.

I should be in Manhattan by 2.30pm local time. Ahead of schedule.


#1392

In fairness to them they do have to deal with self important cunts like you all day.


#1393

Ha ha. I knew you would bite you crotchety aul bollox

:laughing:


#1394

Flying into JFK or Newark?


#1395

JFK.


#1396

Do they train them to be cunts? Been travelling a bit with BA, Air France and Lufthansa recently and the difference is unreal.

Also, are Irish airlines (excluding Cityjet) the only ones that don’t give you a free drink & snack? Are we really that stingy?


#1397

Going to Copenhagen in a couple of weeks and looked to fly SAS but the price of it. Free drink/snack or not it was just too much wedge to go against the account.
Do have priority with Ryanair though, and yes I am the last of the big spenders.

Company man


#1398

Would you get a free drink in first class?


#1399

No business or first class on Aer Lingus European flights


#1400

To be fair their income has dropped 10% immediatelyy after Catergate.


#1401

Two particularly sour-faced cunts on the Gatwick flight right now. One of them is a bent as a snake in a jar, you’d think with all that campness he’d have a welcoming smile for the passengers.


#1402

Signing in from The City

I will travel to the regions tonight.


#1403

Will be passing through there myself on Friday and Wednesday. Two one hour meetings that just couldn’t be lined up. It’s a pain but it’s for Ireland Inc. so we go again.
