Avanti are offering free travel for today only for FlyBe passengers. A nice gesture or cynical advertising ploy

Either subsidise them like rail is heavily subsidised or cut it for all and let the market decide. It’s bonkers the SE has such heavily subsidised public transport imho.

The rail subsidy figures are a disgrace for a "privatised" industry but are skewed (I think) partially by the HS2 fiasco.

And yet they're still one of the better operators in my experience :uhoh:

Heavily subsidised? I pay £212 a month for a 15 minute journey each way. Doesn't feel like the fiscal burden's being eased all that muchl. A trip to London sans any railcards (luckily I still qualify for the 26 -30) can be around £50 at peak times. 50 minute journey and not particularly far away geographically either; journey time reflects number of stations called at more than anything.

The best operator was Virgin............ who then had their franchise pulled :lol:

Just because you are being ripped off in fares doesn't alter the subsidies. It just means the operators are making even more money directly and indirectly from the public's purse.

On the other hand our season tickets still cost hundreds a month and property prices are ridiculous.

We also generate a massive regional surplus in tax revenue that finds public spending in the rest of the UK.

Cut all subsidies. These are meant to be private enterprises. Otherwise renationalise.

whilst in principal I agree with you, I suspect cutting all subsidies or moving to nationalisation would actually make transport worse in the UK. Perhaps a hybrid, cutting subsidies for the operators but fully nationilising the infrastructure part ?

a 3rd option would be just to give the whole shebang over to the Chinese :thumbup:

True. Every year the substantially above inflation price hike while profits soar and shareholder dividends vomit cash.

Cunts.

And it seems that my travel insurance policy didn't automatically renew last year, after my main health insurance policy was changed. Haven't had travel insurance for the last 11 months, which means I've probably no chance of retrieving some of the money we spent on Flybe tickets less than two weeks ago. x(

Poindexter in the lab, but Homer Simpson in the bank !

seriously though, if you paid via credit card i'd hammer them for the insurance protection because at the end of the day, you paid for something and it failed to deliver. you won't be the only one who this is adversely affecting. good luck :thumbup:

Wouldn't bringing it under direct ministerial control be worse? Arm's length means it shouldn't be pulled from doctrinal pillar to post every time a minister or Govt changes.

fudge knows how anyone could make it worse - but with a decent majority government, changes could be made at least in theory.

If you paid by credit card, their insurance should cover you.

Paid for with debit card. I've never had a credit card, with debit cards I've never needed one. I really need to get the finger out on that front for stuff just like this.

I jumped the gun. Travel insurance was part or the changed international health insurance policy, hence the add-on travel bit not renewing next time it came up. Should be grand. Fired them an email to get it rolling.
GF has no cover though, so that money is almost certainly down the drain.

jayz.. yup i'm not sure if you are going to get that cash back in that case. Insurance changes / exclusions / policy endings are an utter ballache, nearly always worth ticking the 'auto renew' box.
Credit cards are in fact very easy to take out and if disciplined with money, easy to manage - sort one out asap if only to prevent this sort of thing happening to you again. Debit cards should be used only really for getting money from an ATM, credit cards have the insurance plus you only actually pay for it say 56 days later.

one final benefit of a credit card, is that it builds up your financial track record (providing you handle it correctly and don't miss payments), so if you ever get around to making an honest women out of your Fly Honey and want to buy a house, then getting a mortgage will be easier and cheaper for you.
good luck anyways ya great steaming Langer ye :thumbup:

backrow I agree you definitely are a mash of Inbetweener characters traits. Displaying definite traits of nerdy goody two shoes Will now.

All good advice of course.

She's got herself a two year fellowship, I'm in the process of trying to get one. More fixed term contracts. Yay.
She'll get an academic position for sure, I'm less certain! There's more industry here that I'd be interested in than in Ireland, but we want to move home (just in time to participate in the Shinner socialist republic!).
