Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

yes, Geneva was looking dodgy! Nuisance as it is, I am just glad we are stuck in the chalet and not at the airport. Poor people

Let people remember this next time we have the classic pub-bore winge about how a few centimetres of snow brings the UK grinding to a halt. Geneva was closed for 6 hours to remove 10 cms - less than much of the UK has had.

Wrong kind of snow apparently, the normal swiss stuff gets itself organised in proper layers and ready to be leave, apparently this stuff, possibly Brexit type snow, is sort of sticky and changes from easy to remove to very sticky, hence the delay Toofy Grin

I hope innsbruck is OK, as I'm flying in today and it was shut 2 weeks ago coming back after Ny.

As the great Oscar Wilde might have put it
' to arrive at one closed airport is unfortunate, but to do s so twice would be positively careless!!'

Grenoble open - we just taking off for LGW 3.5 hours late.
Pretty chaotic at the airport - little information or communication.
A couple of flights had passengers bussed to Lyon
Flights started landing around 11.

Seatbelts on here at Edinburgh so hopefully departing soon, 90 min delay, could be worse

more likely the French just being French, causing disruption today knowing its Brit change over day Toofy Grin - will be fine tomorrow and the rest of the week Madeye-Smiley

Its not fun though, when sat waiting due to poor weather conditions, in the airport.
Had to spend a night once in Denver airport, due to Aspen airport being snowed in - conditions the next day when we arrived were fantastic though snowHead

Not again. When we were in Finland Thomson (through crystal) nicked our plane to pick Grenoble folk up so we had an 11 hour delay. Hope all sorts for everyone.

Once was sat on the ground for 8 hours at Lyon. It snowed continuously. The plane got deiced more than once. Finally it looked like we were going to get away. The cabin had got a bit stinky so the captain asked the flight attendants to open a front door and a rear door to get a bit of through flow ventilation.

The rear door was opened without the flight attendant de activating the emergency slide. Big bang and the slide deployed.

The BA captain had an official sense of humour failure.

About the only good thing was as it was the airlines fault they put us up in a hotel at their expense.

Check, recheck and then check again when things are not running to the routine.
But it can happen to the best of them - even the Queens Flight Embarassed They thought it had been initiated but had not gone bang. So they removed it from the aircraft (it looks pretty much like a sailing emergency raft in a similar container). After half an hour someone decided it would be OK so put it in a hire car to go and exchange it. Guess what - BANG - and a hire car with no windows!!!
