The disgrace of our cattle-market airports
By Chris Blackhurst

Passengers face another summer of endless queues and delays – it’s time BA and BAA were taken to task for their shoddy service.

It was not the most pleasant of introductions to a holiday: a woman with a clipboard, marching up and down, shouting: “Dubrovnik, anyone for Dubrovnik?” She kept her bellowing up for 15 minutes, only breaking off to usher another cluster of flustered passengers out of the meandering queue to the check-in desk.

Welcome to Gatwick’s North Terminal. Welcome to the appalling service that two of the slickest companies in Britain, BA and BAA, are able to muster.

If a global ban on air travel was imposed tomorrow, carbon dioxide emissions would be reduced by about three per cent. Economic activity, meanwhile, would be reduced by eight per cent, as IATA is never slow to point out. Nonetheless, as the fastest-growing source of CO2 emissions, aviation is coming under increasing pressure to turn the skies green.

Munich airport named ‘Best Airport in Europe 2006’
Edward Plaisted, CEO of the London-based aviation research institute, Skytrax, was on hand for an awards ceremony at Munich Airport to honour Munich/s status as the “Best Airport in Europe” for 2006. In April, Munich Airport picked up the accolade for the second year in a row, and also moved up one spot to number 3 worldwide, in the Skytrax “World Airport Awards 2006” survey of 7 million passengers from 93 countries.

Munich Airport CEO, Dr Michael Kerkloh, accepted the award on behalf of the 500-plus companies that make up the Munich Airport campus. “This is not an award which we/ve won alone as the airport operator,” noted Kerkloh, adding that “the excellence in service here at Munich Airport is a result of outstanding teamwork between members of the airport family.”

Flying on holiday is a sin, says Bishop of London
Flying on holiday or buying a “gas-guzzling” car is sinful, a leading Church of England bishop has declared, writes Adam Lusher.

The Bishop of London, the Rt Rev Richard Chartres, called on Christians to recognise their moral obligation to be environmentally friendly.

He was reported last night as saying: “There is now an overriding imperative to walk more lightly upon the earth and we need to make lifestyle decisions in that light. Making selfish choices such as flying on holiday or buying a car are a symptom of sin.”

Take a pill
A link between air travel and a higher risk of deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) is widely suspected, but the causes are uncertain. Aviation Health (AH), an independent body dealing with aviation issues, suggests precautionary measures. Unless contraindicated, a low-dose aspirin (100-150mg) taken the day before a flight, on the day and for two or three days after can reduce the risk of pulmonary embolism by up to 60%. Studies at Dokkyo University, Japan, meanwhile, found that a natural protein in fermented soya beans has an anti-thrombotic effect similar to that of the anticoagulant drug heparin - AH recommends NKCP NattoTabs supplements (from healthy.co.uk), and compression socks to prevent blood pooling in the feet and lower legs.
