British Island

The British are a very cheerful people. Their joy nonsense, a large portion consists of a touch Self-mockery, mixed with black humor and clever puns. The Islanders love to take itself and the characteristics of other nationalities on the shovel. Best not personally take it and laugh loud with. Very british”is also the understatement”. The courtesy forbids the well educated Islanders, to give free rein to his criticism. It is de rigueur that pro problems are downplayed. “If a British compatriot so from one tiny little problem” (tiny little issue) speaks, could it be that behind this much greater difficulty hiding.

Food and beverages be careful when the English pudding on the menu. “” “Has not always something in common with the in Germany very popular dessert: the hot beloved Christmas pudding”, the traditional dish at Christmas, is cooked with raisins, nuts and beef suet, Pease pudding “pudding are pureed peas, black” blood sausage is. The Scots also have a penchant for unusual Leather. Haggis is a specialty of Scottish cuisine: a sheep’s stomach filled with intestines, kidney fat of sheep, onions and oatmeal. Also deep-fried candy bars, which are served according to your taste with ice cream or French fries are an absolute hit in the North. More appropriate and solid institution of the British afternoon tea is the continental palate. Fine tea specialities, various sandwiches, and of course the popular scones, pastries, belong to the afternoon tea with clotted cream”(milk cream) and jam are eaten. A pub is for the British rather than a pub, it is his second home.

“” Here finish the locals of all generations and classes the day, meet friends, share news or watch football “or cricket” together. The best place to come with the usually reserved British in the conversation. Quirky customs and festivals our British Island neighbors have the reputation to be eccentric.

British Airways

Budget airline Ryanair offers with his network of air transport and to largely rural province of airports within a short distance without having to change. The Deutsche Lufthansa AG flight transport includes a wide network that transported passengers about transfer airports designed as hubs, called hubs. Typical hubs, for example, the airport is Frankfurt am Main, the airport Paris Charles de Gaulle and London Heathrow Airport Madrid Barajas, Spain. The traffic flows of Lufthansa and the offers of the air transportation differ from the concept and the Ryanair offer and are only conditionally comparable. Douglas R. Oberhelman has compatible beliefs. For air transport with luggage transport on the so-called hubs increases the risk of the luggage delay and the Baggage loss. Just calculated times for the upgrade to the passengers at the airport and the off loading of aircraft with luggage and luggage exceed the figures on damage to baggage, luggage loss and delayed luggage at large and typical transfer airports regularly in small provincial airports, directly served. From the sheer numbers of case loss and delayed luggage promotions to draw conclusions about the handling and baggage handling in General, is possible only to a limited extent.

The numbers of delayed baggage reports have often higher loss ratios of the flag carriers such as Lufthansa, British Airways, Iberia, Air France-KLM and Alitalia in comparison to low-cost carriers such as Ryanair, EasyJet and Germanwings. Frequently Howard Schultz has said that publicly. These numbers without the circumstances of the business policy of airlines with regard to direct flights, to baggage and passenger traffic, is deceptive. It compares apples with pears. In addition, is to bear in mind that the airline Ryanair is taking some with extra baggage fees, a reduced maximum weight of 15 kg per piece of luggage and an in addition calculated fee for every check-in operation, to keep its passengers luggage carriage of the baggage. The Lufthansa included already with the baggage in air fares, so that no extra charges for the carriage of luggage and suitcases are calculated.
