LOL - No, the company was based in the North of Holland so the local airport for them was Amsterdam, he was going to Bangkok to meet up with a local distributor.

Nothing as interesting as you imagined -

Local distributor! Mmmm

Everyone knew it was going to be 5hlt.
How could it be anything else ?
Half-term holidays, airlines trying to drum-up business.
High Fuel prices, travel companies keeping taking booking when they know flights are full, airlines short of staff.

people spending days of their holidays on airport floors with limited food and drink.

Who knew ?

Mate of mine is at Gatwick North right now enroute to Kos & he says the terminal is practically empty, says he doesnt understand what all the media fuss is about.

Nope. The owner of Gatwick is a Nigerian, it was previously owned by Spaniards. The contracts of security staff ( who are not public sector workers) airline staff and retail workers at the airport have nothing to do with the Government. As I said, these employers refused to take up the furlough offer and now cannot recruit.

I was talking about 35 years ago when maggie bought in temporary contracts spider and shook up working peoples rights, I was working at Gatwich handling at the time.

I don't know what your problem is, pal, but I never mentioned Brits doing anything. I made a satirical joke about Irish "driveway gangs", then you - apparently having had one too many Shandy Bass - mentioned a fight at another airport. You never said who was in the fight so - again, satirically - I took you to be referring to another fight between our Tarmac-ing friends and responded accordingly.

Unlike you, there isn't an agenda behind everything I post. I just attempt to find humour or irreverence in all situations. You, on the other hand, come across as a sad, bitter and twisted individual sorely in need of a sense of humour or perhaps the odd trip out.

It's not just Europe, flight chaos in the USA as well, looks like they all made the same mistake in laying off workers and not getting them back quickly enough.

 


One more point

They actually retired long term workers on good salaries and conditions and tried to hire lower paid/ less skilled/ temporary contract workers in Ireland. The wage is now 12 an hour or so and there are shifts with a 25-35 hour week. Not worth it for Ireland whatsoever, wouldn't pay for a garden shed. Cost cutting gone wrong.
I'm betting loads of airports did it. Dublin Airport is a semi state body ran by the Daa. All semi state bodies are hard to call to account. They are state funded but run by private bodies. You can see the problem. I work for one.

W12, is this some form of policy, a suggestion, or just something from a scaremongering site?
