Welcome to the 2018 Business Travel News popular year-end quiz.
Once again a very big thanks to Rod Simpson of AIR BRITAIN in helping to put it together, to our prize supplier, easyjet, for a return flight for two anywhere on its extensive system, and to Crecy Publications Ltd for three second prizes of any of its aviation titles. This year, we are also giving away three copies of the commemorative book LONDON CITY AIRPORT – 30 Years Linking the Capital, written by BTN editor-in-chief Malcolm Ginsberg.
Treat the quiz as a bit of fun and point out the website to your friends. If you decide to enter, don't worry that your answers may not be complete. You can be sure others are having the same struggle. But you must be a registered reader to take part. It's FREE. Only 30 images this year, but we have some supplementary questions worth double marks.
The tie break is very simple: "Which is the best airline at Heathrow T4 and why?" But in 10 words or fewer. Last year it was T3 and to ask the question for T5 is not fair on Iberia.
Please send your numbered answers to email@example.com together with your answer to the tie break.
Closing date is Friday evening 4 January at 24:00 (GMT).
