Tonight's Burgas to London Flight 27.01.2014

It is not often that this blog can give a contemporaneous story of flight delays in Bulgaria, but here goes..
My friend is on this flight, I saw that the airport was not even open till this afternoon so expected it would be delayed.

I just received a call from him to say that it looks like delayed till 4am at earliest.There is also a Moscow flight delayed since 1pm.

My immediate advice to anyone delayed by Wizzair is get receipts for everything.I paid 60lv for a place on a private minibus from Sofia to Varna, after a fog bound Varna caused us to land in the capitol.They lied that there were buses outside the airport to get us off the plane.There were of course none, and when we claimed against them they refused to pay, as we did not have receipts (as if Varna passengers got to Varna via telepathy !) .The problem with Wizzair is obviously not the snow, it is the abysmal lack of information and customer care.The flight that they are supposed to take was originally redirected to Sofia, but is now back in London.Now basic maths says that if it was supposed to land in Burgas at 6pm and is now in London it cannot possibly be back in Burgas till at least 3 am (i.e. 3 hours back to London, change of crew possibly, passengers and luggage who may want to disembark another 2 hours, plus new take off time another 1 hour plus. 4 am minimum take off).
Random factor it will be -9 tonight.

Get receipts for all food/drink incurred and threaten them with IATA/ABTA.

UPDATE: The Burgas and Varna flights were bussed  from Burgas at about midnight.They flew from Sofia to Luton via two chartered flights which landed at 8am GMT. At least this time Wizzair get commended for actually getting the passengers home.

Anyone any opinions of tonights C4 'What Happens in Sunny Beach' programme ?



I will post my views tomorrow , but feel free to post  here overnight.

I watched the second part of this 'documentary' last night and you could basically set it at any party resort in the world, young kids get pissed and are promiscuous..so what ??.

If you know Sunny Beach you will realise that it is a sort of mega resort full of hotels, restaurants and bars.It is a typical Bulgarian Black Sea resort except for its size.Cheap booze is the main thing, and thanks to this free publicity there will be thousands more Brits drinking, shagging and fighting there next year.No one actually lives in the resort, the apartments there (of which there are hundreds) are just for the summer.So the big winners are the resort owners, who are mainly organised crime, who will make millions from these drunken idiots.

By the nature of weather forecasting for a whole nation these predictions are too general.I expect Western and Central Bulgaria to get snow, otherwise not much fun in the ski resorts.People were saying in November 'it is going to be a bad winter', well it is late January so not much time left.

10 great British rural horror films | BFI

Driving of other peoples cars in Bulgaria.Legal changes.

The latest innovation of " Traffic Police " is anyone who drives a car , which is not the owner be required to register as a user in the traffic police to be able to sit behind the steering foreign . Otherwise, it threatens a fine from 150 Levs
The passing a week ago a bill was more than scandalous , contrary to the legal provisions of other laws and even the constitution.

The new paragraph reads: A natural or legal person who operates a vehicle under the legal basis other than ownership , within a month of its occurrence shall be registered as a user of the vehicle. So if your wife and be sick or faint and not want to wait for an ambulance to make it - quickly , we can not take her to private and car unless you have reported up to 1 month before that possibly your wife and can become worse in the next month and will have to drive and the car.

This is translated from Bulgarian.

Eight one! Eight bloody one!.For all West Ham Fans !

British people living abroad in the EU some figures




Fascinating piece of information regarding where British people live in the EU.The figures for the Republic of Ireland presumably take into account Irish with dual nationality. Also the figures for Bulgaria are probably an underestimate as a lot of people never bother to notify the embassy or the government, presumably the figure is for those with ID cards.No surprise that there are 1 million in Spain or 330,000 in France, few in Italy ?.
