Hi Jackie.

We flew with xl and it was freeeeezing.Think they do it to sell the blankets. Loads of people complained. The stewardess agreed it was cold and went and put a cardi on!!! Take a blanket. You will feel it coming home from the lovely sun.

I travelled with FC last December and wore a hoodie and a fleece which I put over my legs.I also took socks for the return journey.

Its disgusting if they are putting on the air conditioning so people will buy their blankets.They are thin anyway and dont keep you warm.

Is everybody sure that it is actually cold and not all in the mind because youve just spent a couple of weeks in really hot temps and now your going to normal temps?

In my house, if I sit outside on a sunny day (not often though :) ) and go inside to my living room, it always feels cold but if I look at the thermometer it always appears normal, its just that my body is hot.

i tend to travel out in layered clothes to suit here, always have a cardi/ top/ hoodie or what ever, this can easily be put into hand luggage on arrival, on return journey i tend to travel in a pair of shorts to the airport then change into the trousers i travelled out in either on the flight or just prior to boarding if time permits, i have laughed so much at the idiots who travel back to this country in just a pair of shorts and strappy t shirt, then complain when they are cold after landing here at some god forsaken early hours in minus degrees. we are putting a beach towel in hand luggage so will use that if cold on flight
