Quotes

"Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem. All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them going again. I trust you are not in too much distress."
A spokesman for the South West Trains-Network Rail Alliance said: "The past 24 hours have been very difficult for our customers and we are sorry they have faced significant disruption. It has also been a tough time for our frontline teams across the network who have been working extremely hard in difficult conditions to keep trains running."
..."Airports seem to believe they have the right to dip their hands into our pockets whenever they feel short of money," he said. "Stansted recently introduced a minimum charge of £2 for all cars dropping passengers at the terminal (it already charges for picking them up). For that, you get 10 minutes in the drop-off zone. Fifteen minutes will cost you £3. And you had better watch the clock while you are hugging your loved ones, because your registration plate is scanned when you drive in, and if you overstay the 15-minute limit, you will have to pay £50. The only way to avoid a charge is to drop them at the mid-stay car park and put them on the bus."
