Georgraphical split
Airline envisages bedrooms and bars
By David Robertson, Business Correspondent
A glimpse at the future of air travel indicates that it will remain as class-ridden as in the days when rich Britons asked for “Port Out, Starboard Home” on journeys to the Orient.
Emirates Airline, the world’s fastest-growing international carrier, has revealed for the first time the seat configurations that it will use on its new fleet of A380 superjumbos.

Carbon offsetting? I haven’t got a clue, said the BA booking clerk
British Airways is condemned today by MPs for a “derisory” performance in encouraging customers to mitigate the environmental damage of flights.
The airline boasts that it was the first to launch a scheme letting passengers offset their carbon dioxide emissions by paying to support energy-saving schemes abroad. But it is selling only enough offsets per year to neutralise the damage caused by four return flights from London to New York by a 777 jet.
“How many do you do per week to New York?” Tim Yeo, the chairman of the Environmental Audit Committee demanded of BA’s company secretary, Alan Buchanan, during a Commons investigation. “Rather more than that,” Mr Buchanan replied. He admitted that there were 50 a week.

Hands luggage curb will last all summer
One-bag limit under fire at security summit
BA admits to shipping baggage by lorry to Italy
By Ben Webster, Transport Correspondent
The ban on taking more than one piece of hand luggage on board aircraft will be lifted, government officials said yesterday, but not until after the summer holidays.
Millions of families heading abroad can expect frustrating delays of up to an hour queueing at security check-points as the big holiday rush begins over the next few weeks. The Department for Transport told aviation industry leaders at a special meeting on security that it would not be altering any of its stringent rules because of security fears.
Restrictions on hand luggage were imposed last August after an alleged plot was uncovered to blow up transatlantic airliners.

BA pilots ‘bullied’ into overtime
Union chiefs claim British Airways is ‘bullying’ pilots into working overtime, which could put them and their passengers at risk.

They say pilots who have just completed tiring transatlantic trips have been met by BA officials as they walk down the aircraft steps and immediately handed written instructions drafting them on to other flights.

Q This year I am going on a long-haul trip. Can you suggest a natural remedy t
A. Many travellers find that sleep eludes them, especially on long-haul flights. The herbal remedy I recommend to help you to relax and sleep during your flight is Medic Herb’s Valerina Night-Time, which comes in a convenient blister pack. It is a traditional herbal remedy, containing extracts of valerian root, lemon balm and hops, which help to relieve tension, soothe nerves and promote natural sleep. Valerian – known in the Middle Ages as “allheal” – is one of the most widely recognised herbal relaxants, and when it is combined with hops and lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), another calming herb that is ideal for anxiety, the overall relaxation effect is enhanced. Medic Herb’s Valerina Night-Time costs £5.99 for 80 tablets and is available from Boots or www.medicherb.co.uk; for mail order, call 01453 751395. Take as directed.

I would advise you to choose a light meal from the flight menu and drink soothing herbal teas such as camomile. Smelling aromatherapy oils can also be hugely beneficial, so treat yourself to Origins Sleep Time On-the-spot Gel (£14.50 for 50ml, www.origins.co.uk ) a blend of camomile, neroli and lavender. Massage it into the temples and neck and breathe deeply.
