    Again she is quicker on Facebook. Now you can find her in "Paresa Resorts Phuket".

    You can see that must-have-pool-arrangement here also.
    Oh, and thank you all for your information about the airlines. I did not know about the Iberia-BA relationship.

    Code shearing is common place. It can be within one of the alliances (Star Alliance or One World etc.) but it can also be with "independent" airlines.
    It is always route specific and can sometime be with a string of airlines.

    Iberia and British Airways has the same parent company.
    And KLM is owned by Air France.

    Don't forget I shall expect exactly the same assiduous stalking on my journey from Norwich via plane - Dutch trains (2) - friendly lift - Gorinchem ferry - snack at the stall - shanks pony to Hotel Woerkum. Then Stuttgart by plane to A'dam, transfer for Norwich, all by KLM or Air France or whatever turns up so long as it has a couple of wings and three wheels.
    Bet you don't bother.

    Common-place, Ralf. I book my flight with KLM to A'dam and find an Air France plane awaiting me at Norwich. This time I'm booked with KLM Norwich - A'dam and KLM Stuttgart-A'dam-Norwich so it will be interesting to see what I travel on!

    HERE I am! Hope I manage to respond to all my followers and well wishers and their comments and questions! Right Ralf! starting with you! Not sure about that British Airways and Iberia relationship these days, but some years ago they were certainly running some flights as code share. For example on my first trip to Antarctica on NN, the flight Madrid to Buenos Aires might have looked as if it was two flights but was actually one and the same. On the other hand, I could give you examples of flights from Edinburgh to places like London, Amsterdam and some Scandinavian destinations which are separate and clearly in competition - often long established airlines and newer low cost ones departing at close to the same time of day! And yes if there is any kind of delay and missed slots it can sure result in some amusing / exasperating results!!!! All the changing groupings need careful following ... Lufthansa, SAS, and Thai are all in Star Alliance so I'd get my frequent flyer points on my SAS account with any of them these days! Right, that's already a long reply, so I'd better post it before it gets lost in cyberspace ...see why I quickly dealt with FB first! OK, in between there was ****tails on offer, and that kind of morphed into a buffet in the "Club Room" which was exactly the light meal I wanted in an evening when the flight was serving breakfast in the afternoon local Bangkok time!

    I stalked her just on Facebook. She is now in Novotel Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport.

    Let's see, when she drops in here again. I am slightly disappointed to find the newest news not here, but on FB, Lady C !

    Seemed to be a busy day at Heathrow. Alright, that was a teasing sentence. Sorry, i was asking this to myself while writing and later found the answer. I am no frequest flight passenger, and so i was surprised about the same flight offered by Iberia and BA. A German surely would protest, if he would have booked a flight at Lufthansa and then there is an Iberia plane on the airfield. What do you think about it?

    already delayed - so who is running the route today - the Brits?
    Then later:
    One hour delay at the departure, 40 minutes delay at arrival,
    So not the Brits, eh???

    One hour delay at the departure, 40 minutes delay at arrival, but the seagull is landed. I don't think she has to change to another flight in Bangkok, so no marathon needed.

    Yes, Spending a VERY nice and relaxing day at the airport, Ralf! None of those exhausting pakarang Frankfurt marathon races for me!

    What and where is the "Where is ...." Thread Ralf, probably me being stupid but I can't think what you mean!

    EDIT: oh now I get it!!! me stupid ...you mean the PUZZLE thread,,,,,, well as you see below that rather depends on figuring out how to post photos!

    I'm intending to make updates right here, but adding photos on the move may be too challenging with the CVF via Photobucket on an iPad combo!

    How about posting from time to time is the "Where is...?" thread? Would be a nice refreshment and enable us to follow your steps in Thailand.

    So you're on British Airways 009 or Iberia 7618 heading for Bangkok 14.55 - already delayed - so who is running the route today - the Brits?
    Anyway - have a good flight and a right-in-time arrival tomorrow morning at 9.02.
