    So much has changed since 9/11 hasn't it - I used to go abroad a lot with my mum in the 90s (before being disabled) and it was nothing like as it is now. I was shocked when I went to Cyprus how much...

    Thanks both of you that is really helpful. I can see why it's a good idea to check in online beforehand if you can just take along your own boarding card. I might take my passport just in case of ID....

    Thank you for your reply, it's reassuring to hear it happens a lot that the council get access to decisions first. It's funny though as with that being the case, it's odd the call handlers don't...
