    Yes, Brexit. It is uncertain what is going to happen in the UK after 29 March 2019. Unless an agreement is reached before March next year there could be chaos at UK airports next spring and summer:

    "There would also seem to be some slight complications for foreign aircraft. The EU (EASA) has in the past dealt with foreign airlines and issued their TCO approvals, permitting them to operate in the territory of EU Member States (and the Efta States).

    But once the UK leaves the EU, these airlines will no longer have authority to operate in the UK. Thus, the British authorities (presumably the CAA) will have to set up its own approval programme, and invite all the foreign carriers (including EU/Efta carriers) to apply.

    No doubt these minor details can be attended to quite swiftly, once the CAA has recruited and trained the extra staff."

    To put it in American terms, would you let Trump organise your vacation? If not I wouldn't rely on the UK Government to sort this all out next year.

    I live in Appalachia and believe me, there ain't no Brünnhildes and Wotans lurking around down in these hills. I would've walked out too on that.

    Kind regards,

    My, my, that sounds like one big cacapoo! Hope they get it straightened out. And thanks for the info.

    Kind regards,
