Are there any lawyers and/or wordsmiths in the house who would be willing to help out doing a quick review?

Please PM me if you can spare some time. I think I have the logic fully defined, but my dyslexia is a pain...

My TCS has come down with a nasty attack of death.

I'm hoping it is acute death and not chronic death.

If the latter, I will be given a very strong incentive to get the Odroid which Ernst sold me into full working order. The only reason for hanging on for so long is that there does not appear to be an INDI driver for the dome controller.

IANAL

I am a pedant and a proof-reader if that helps.

Our return flight from BA in January has just been cancelled, there’s one available on the day before. Now I’m not sure if we should go in December.

Is BA "British Airways" or "Buenos Aires" in this context?

Iberia/BA three times cancelled our flights from La Palma to the UK. We managed to get back ytesterday by taking a local hop to Gran Canaria (SPC->LPA)with BinterCanarias and then Ryanair to STN. We were the last flight of the day to land and Stansted shut completely at 5pm.

Managed to reschedule for the previous day but then they requested extra seat payments. What a dishonest company. Gave them a call, discussed the matter, all fixed but probably I spent the extra on the call!!


I don't have an option outside going with a low-cost airline, but I don't trust them during this pandemic situation where I need to have guarantees that everything is cleaned, for M safety, she has asthma. I trust BA or TAP on this matter, TAP was very expensive. Best was by BA.

We flew back with Ryanair ("The world's most loathed airline") which are as low-cost as they come. We were adivsed to do so because they are so desperate to fly that they are unlikely to cancel.

My strategy was going for a airline with less probability to go bust during this pandemic.

Serious masks are not longer impossible to get hold of, and might help if you are worried.
