    Actually sounds like Carrasco Airport has plenty of spare capacity at the moment. Perhaps return flights to the Falklands could help out? I'm sure BA will then look at a direct connection to London. Flights to the US.

    There's going to be a lot of oil executives flying on and out soon.

    And best thing yet? Don't need to use Argentinean airspace between Stanley and Montevideo. No more threats to cut off.

    At least the dreadful Iberia/BA outfit has gone.

    Air France is ok but CDG has the well deserved label of being the lost luggage capital of the world. They always lost mine and I stopped transiting it as a result.

    The Pluna thing is a direct result of corruption at the top in the government of Uruguay and a certain Argentine ‘with very close links to the government’.
