Re: Proposed new flight-paths

I really don't see any meaningful difference to the current approaches / departures flown for those scenarios. Perhaps they are continuous approaches to minimise emissions. Although the latter two are only relevant to domestic flights heading to MAD, PMI etc... I really cannot see the existing prima...

Re: Everything is closing early this year

I can assure you that neither TUI group or Ryanair have any issues with profitability, so anyone telling you they are in a spot of bother clearly can't read a balance sheet...

Re: Night photography

In Ukraine enjoying the local beer and aircraft :grin: There are not any clubs or excursions to my knowledge, but the North coast of Menorca is pretty good for dark sky photography. It can though be a pain avoiding the lighthouses. What seems like an insignificant amount of light can really ruin a s...

Re: Cost of using a management company

To give you an idea for my 3 bed + large pool:

Management = 45 / mo
Pool = 75 / mo
Cleaning = 16.5 / ph
Gardening = 15 ph

Re: Picking up family at airport

Yes it's 15 minutes free, and they are using ANPR so you don't have to go to the ticket machine - just drive straight out again afterwards. It's 1.65 over 15 mins though, so it you're planning on staying just park downstairs in the main car park.

Re: Weekend / short trips - do-able?

Yeap, it's very relaxing to nip over for the weekend - been over eight times this year so far on short breaks, plus a couple of long ones. During the winter it's more of a pain, but out Friday night and back Monday night via BCN both ways is still doable. During the summer it's very easy, especially...

Re: Loose floor

It's a hydrochloric acid based solution, but no it's not the acid itself. The concentrations I've seen range from 15-30% acid - still highly dangerous if not used with care though!

Re: Loose floor

Tell me about it! Over 1000 hours into my villa project :neutral: I've just done the tiles and grout in my pool, I can recommend Salfumant (sp?) cleaning solution - it is hydrochloric based and costs under 4 Euro for 5L from Pallisers. I think you can use it with the pool filled, but you may wish to...
