    jet blue Airlines Competition Why Airlines Need Competition .
    by: James Post
    The airline holds a virtual monopoly for intra-Caribbean flights, and it shows. Once they canceled a flight because of "technical reasons". Most people realised that the real reason was economy as the flight was poorly booked. No apology, let alone compensation. Another time I almost missed a flight because it left half an hour early. Since I only had hand luggage it was so convenient to kick me out.

Our bodies are creatures of habit and once we have adjusted to a specific time zone, they don't like things to change.

    by: Luis JJ Teixeira
    You need to understand that there is no such thing as discounted airfare and/or getting the cheapest airfare available. This is simply because there is no base price to work off. For example, a flight from New York to London should cost $600, but airline companies are offering it at $400. People really need to understand the reason for this is that there is no such thing as a fixed ticket price.

    Many people are concerned about flying and are often referred to as "white-knuckle-flyers." I retired after thirty six years as a pilot for a major airline. Every pilot during his or her career has experienced situations where they've thought it would be nice to be on the ground instead of in the air. However, such experiences are not reasons that would make us afraid to fly ...

Car Parking at Stansted Airport

By Mark Felix
Car parking at Stansted airport is well thought out, considering that it is the UK's fourth largest airport serving 19 million customers a year, operating 20 airlines covering 114 destinations, and all with just one runway and one terminal. You'd think things would be cramped and possibly hard to find, but the airport offers a wide range of parking options and at prices which are competitive considering the location of this airport.

Stansted airport offers a number of different parking options, from short stay to mid stay and from long stay to meet-and-greet or valet services. The short stay car parking, which requires no advanced booking, is primarily aimed at providing a suitable service for those who are dropping passengers off or picking them up. It is very close to the main terminal and is charged at £2.60 for up to an hour. However, the first 15 minutes are free which is well worth knowing, and if you can drop off or pick your passengers up quickly then parking will not cost you anything.

For stays of a day or more you can choose from either the mid stay or long stay car parks. The mid stay car parks are just 5 minutes from the terminal by shuttle bus and cost £12.50 per 24 hour period. Although there's no need to book in advance, the advantage of doing so will mean that a place is guaranteed for you: there is no guarantee if you just turn up, and as this is a busy airport it's best not to leave your parking arrangements to chance.

The long stay parking is the best option if you're leaving your car at the airport while you go away on holiday and represents the best value for money if you book in advance. The shuttle bus will collect you, running every 8 minutes during peak times, and every 20 minutes off peak.

The long stay car parking at Stansted airport incorporates a great deal of security, including high security fencing, monitored CCTV coverage and regular patrols. In addition, the long stay car parks include parking for Blue Badge holders, and these 130 bays have been built to the best modern standards, offering all of the space and facilities you require. However, in order to be able to take advantage of this option you are highly recommended to book in advance to be sure of getting one of these spaces should you need it.

You may also be interested to note that Stansted airport parking has a number of other facilities in its long stay car parks, which are not often seen at other locations. This includes a number of oversized bays which are suitable for camper vans or for cars with trailers. Again, however, to be certain of being able to obtain one of these, book in advance because they are limited.

If you do not book in advance then not only are you not guaranteed to be able to find the kind of bay you require, but you will also be charged the roll-up rate of £9 per 24 hours, or part thereof, which makes it much more expensive, and you can obtain discounts of up to 60% by booking in advance.

There are two further options to consider besides the short stay, medium stay and long stay car parks and these are the park and sleep, and the meet and greet services.

The park and sleep service is one offered by the local hotels, including the De Salis hotel. Imagine being able to turn up at the hotel, park your car and then enjoy a night's rest before you fly. In the morning, or whenever your flight departs, you catch the free shuttle bus from outside the hotel entrance, and just 5 minutes later you're at the terminal. At the end of your holiday you call a number and your car is brought to you at the terminal within a few minutes. The parking at these hotels is, in many cases, free, and so all you pay is for your one night's accommodation.

Alternatively the meet and greet service, sometimes referred to as a valet or chauffeur service, is one which allows minimal hassle, and is ideal if you have elderly or disabled passengers, children or a lot of heavy or bulky luggage to take. This service completely eliminates any requirement for travelling or using shuttle busses. Just turn up outside the terminal and your chauffeur will meet you, help you unpack your luggage from the vehicle, and will then drive your car away for you, to be parked in a secure facility.

At the end of the holiday, your chauffeur will drive your car back to the terminal for you. At just £49 for 8 days, this is not an expensive option at all, and as far as car parking at Stansted airport is concerned, it's the easiest, simplest and most hassle free option available.

Further information on parking at Stansted Airport is available at where you will also find details of other facilities at Stansted and other UK airports.
