AND FINALLY: One way press trip

We never like to mention airlines/airports or even train operators when they are acting really daft.  AERBT will tell you the story but not actually name a name.

After all, the perpetrator's ‘human rights’ might be involved.

In any event the 11th consecutive EBACE (European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition) takes place at Geneva Airport 17-19 May.  It’s a big event.

The invitations are rolling in for press conferences, lunches and evening entertainment.  And for a visit to a major aerospace factory within Europe, about two hours flight time in a quick executive jet from the show.  Departure is 09:00 and there will be plenty of time to see the latest manufacturing processes and hear about a new product.

Only one problem.

The invite is but a single flight to the factory.  The press is expected to make their own way back.  It looks like the executive jet is going on somewhere else.

And all scheduled services from the city in question to Geneva were discontinued last week!

AERBT will not be represented.
