  1. Well, if you thought you were overcharged in Dalaman, just stay well clear of Incheon, that is Korea. Oh my god, that is the most expensive airport in the world. And I have covered far too many airports in my days. 'bird
  2. Well, I packed as best as I could, and put all the very heavy things into a smallish suitcase that I can 'carry on' It weighed 17,5 kg, but looked light. Then I had 12kg, in my rucksack, that nearly broke my back. I was glad to get it off me. Then I checked in 2 suitcases, with a total weight of 29kg. The girl didnt make any question, as my limit was indicated on my ticket as 20kg. So, all in all, a good flight. 'f'bird
  3. Hello all, I have a 20kg baggage allowance. I expect they will be almost happy if I dont turn up at the check in desk with more than 25kg. But I have way more kg, I have 3 smallish suitcases, with, 10kg, 11gk, and 15kg. weight, plus 2 back packs, with about 8kg and 5kg in each I was going to check in the some bags what add weight to about 25kg Then carry the rest as hand luggage. So what happens if I get to the gate with nmy 15kg siut case ? and the back pack ? and the big, but light 2kg , box of toys for the kids? Will they take the 15kg bag off me at the gate, and put in the hold? I really dont want to pay overweight charges. I was planning on my other travel mate with me at the airport also, to just keep sit down, adn mind my additional bags, so the girl / guy at the check in dont see them ? vette
  4. hello all, I am having a very terrible time trying to open an ordinary current account. I don't want any thing special, just some where to have my wages paid in. I was adjudged bankrupt on 22 Feb. 2006. I was able to keep my only current account with Abbey, and have a visa card. but as I work abroad a lot, I find some times my abbey card isn't always working. I have been to a few banks to try open another account, even if they just give a cash card is fine. I will never need an overdraft. Can some one please tell me which bank I should go to, and which account I should ask them for? Please ''
  5. I will go and dig out the letter. Might take me a day or more. Thanks. G.
  6. yes, then nothing more. Is the process of reclaiming at a halt at the moment? is it likly to re - start again? G.
  7. Not heard nothing since my claim was stayed.. What should I do now? This claim was passed in at Warrington court. I had followed all the prelim letters, got my satements, and sent off a claim, thats when I got a letter from Halifax saying all the claims were put on hold. It's probably only £300 at the most, but I could really do with it now. G.
  8. , , , WELL MY RANT ! What about the blue badge holders who [edited] park in van loading bays !!!!! The blue badge scheme is the most abused scheme I know of, and needs drastic overhaul. Some blue badge holders think nothing of parking ANYWHERE !!!!!
  9. Thanks guy's There are 4 of us plus the boss, so quite a small company. He seems genuine guy, but who can tell. Well, I have made up my mind to leave. I am not due back in work until Monday 7th, so I will just work a week or two, then give him a weeks notice. I have booked a holiday for almost 4 weeks in Cape Town, from mid January, so when I get back I will look for another job. I might have a job in the offering, so all is not lost, it is with a client that I worked for when I worked for the guy I work for now. They said, (prospective employers) I have to leave where I am now, before they will employ me, leaving a gap, as it will look "head hunted" So this holiday will be the "gap". I just can't carry on in the current job with all the uncertainty of getting paid, I also know that we are on "stop" with our 2 biggest wholesalers where we buy 99% of our material. Now I am worried !
  10. Tell them by phone you are unemployed. Ask for a monthly 50% reduction. Works for me with Virgin. lasts for 6 months as a time this is a decent speed checker. it will also remember all your previous speed checks. Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test G.
  11. My current boss has a habit of bouncing the weekly pay cheque. I collect my weekly pay off him on Mondays, I deposit in the bank same day, By Friday, it is returned to branch. This is happening almost every other week. On the Friday that I find it is bounced, he then pay's me cash to cover the rubber cheque that he gave me on the Monday. It has ruined my banking schedule, as I have d.d's to cover. I have had two bank charges applied, which he has paid for me, but it has messed up my good record. I am a bit miffed-off, my wife is fuming, and is almost demanding that i tell him I will only accept cash on Monday's instead of a cheque, until he sorts out his banking. the weekly rubber cheques are around £400.00 What should I do, is it against the law to issue rubber cheques?
  12. Hello all, Has anyone started to reclaim the charges back from using a JJB sports store card. If so, could you please give me the address you found successs at. Also, what stage are you at, have you gotten anything back? Thanks
  13. hello all, As both myself and my wife have credit card accounts with Barclaycard, will the single £10.00 cover both, or will we have to send off 2 x £10.00 seperatly? Should I just send off 2 seperate, but similar statement request letters, and enclosing a £10.00 postal order in each one? Thanks
  14. Hello All, I received ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF SERVICE from Hbos Legal Services, dated 20 September 2006. They indicate they will defend all of the claim. The Acknowledgement says they have 28 days from the date of service. What shall i do next. All advice gladly accepted.
  15. Friday the 6th is the 14th day. Court papers served 2 weeks ago. They said in previous letter that they would not give me a cheque if I was to win. Now Halifax closed both my current and credit card accounts. There is still money owe money to these accounts. I went voluntary bankrupt, thats how the acc. got closed. if I win, will they go against what they said earlier and issue a cheque, or can they put my charges into one of the accounts that THEY closed.
