BA flight in serious electrical failure
British Airways plane carrying 76 passengers suffered a major electrical failure shortly after taking off from Heathrow, an accident report said yesterday.

In what investigators described as “a serious incident”, the Airbus A319 suffered a system failure causing the lights to go out and flight displays to go blank, as it approached 20,000ft on a flight to Budapest in October 2005.

The crew reported an audible “clunk” and the flight deck suddenly became very dark, said the report from the Air Accident Investigation Branch.

Hand Baggage Rules Leave Passengers up in the Air
By Murad Ahmed
The restriction to one item of hand luggage was eased at most British airports yesterday, but there was confusion at some as passengers arrived to find the rule still in place.
Twenty-two airports, including Heathrow, Glasgow and Manchester, have eased hand luggage restrictions, but others, including Gatwick, Luton, Liverpool, Leeds Bradford, Bristol, East Midlands, Coventry, Bournemouth and Exeter, will continue to enforce the one-bag rule. Their operators have not been able to convince the Department for Transport that they can process the extra items without compromising security.
Passengers have been subject to the one-bag rule since security was tightened in August 2006. Rules preventing large amounts of liquids being taken on board are still in place.

Found the body’s chemical key to switch off jet lag
By David Derbyshire, Environment Editor

A key chemical switch that turns a person\'s internal body clock on - and tells us when to wake, eat and sleep - has been discovered by researchers.
They say the findings could lead to treatments for jet lag and other serious sleep disorders, and may also allow drugs to be developed so night shift workers can adjust to their peculiar hours.

Budget airline fliers may get an extra two inches of legroom
By JENNY HOPE
Budget airlines could be forced to give crowded passengers up to two inches more legroom to improve their safety.
The House of Lords Science and Technology Committee called yesterday for the minimum distance between seats to be increased from 26in to 28.2in.
The change would allow passengers to adopt the brace position properly in an emergency and increase their comfort, the committee\'s report says.
Airlines affected by this increase would include easyjet, Monarch, bmibaby, First Choice Airways, My Travel, Thomas Cook and Thomsonfly, some of whose seats have pitches between 26in and 27in.
