Thanks very much. These are the only two bad habits I have :) No doubt it will be a long day, because we are actually flying down from scotland the evening before, due to me making a mistake and not being able to change the internal flights that cost 250.00 each! But heyho, The journey is worth it.

Small airport, so you don't have to walk miles to get to your boarding gate, unlike Gatwick. But you have to walk outside to the plane, so take a jacket in Jan. Or an extra dram in the bar...

You might as well take a few cans along too, save your money for Goa. Strange that Thomson ended up with such weird flight times this season ( not that they`re any cheaper ).

I'me not sure that taking any cans with you would be a good idea, chances are they will be confiscated at security ;-)

Thanks for all the advise. Im not a big drinker, just like to know that there is somewhere to sit in comfy whilst waiting for the flight and have a couple of drinks. Weve booked into the Thistle so at least we wont need to go over for check in until quite late, especially now I know there is no shops. I was pleased to hear you could have a cigarette so that will do me.
