British Airways is the largest airline at London City Airport so we want to give nervous customers the chance to spread their wings and enjoy exploring all the new destinations we have to offer, most recently Split in Croatia.“We’ve had so many incredibly heart-warming stories during the 33 years of the course, but what they all have in common is that we’re helping to connect people, and that definitely makes it all worthwhile.”The one-day course will start at mid-day, with presentations by British Airways pilots and a psychologist, at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel, New Providence Wharf.  It will conclude with a 45-minute flight on a British Airways aircraft when participants will be talked through the flight by the airline’s expert flight crew and offered support and encouragement from experienced cabin crew.Source = British Airwayslast_img read more

I think he’s intrigued, but I think he’smore intrigued by other options out there for variousreasons.” Comments   Share   Manning met with the Dolphins for approximately 6 hoursMonday, but the meeting took place in Indianapolis, notSouth Florida. The former Colts’ quarterback spentquality time with the Cardinals in Tempe and the Broncosin Denver last weekend.With free agency slated to get underway Tuesday afternoonin the NFL, Schefter also speculated on whether or notsome of Manning’s former Indianapolis teammates wouldfollow number 18 wherever he lands. “There is a lot of discussion in league circles thatReggie Wayne will wind up going where Peyton Manning does,be it Denver or Tennessee or Arizona,” he said.Wayne has spent his entire career in Indianapolis, and has862 career receptions, which is good for fourth amongactive NFL receivers. But Wayne isn’t the only Colts player that will hit themarket this afternoon. Tight end Dallas Clark, centerJeff Saturday and wide receiver Pierre Garçon are alsoavailable to the 31 other NFL franchises.“I’m not going to say they bring in all of his formerweapons, but I think it’s a logical conclusion to drawthat wherever Peyton Manning goes, at least a couple ofthese guys are going to follow,” Schefter said.
