A Pre-Christmas Dinner, Monkstown, Dublin - 16th December 2012

There's a sort-of mini Christmas dinner around Evelyn and Louise's gaff, without about three hundred people crammed around the table. The night before, though, there's a quieter affair as we try out a bit of a fondue, complete with Gruyere, Emmental and Kirsch.

There's something odd going on at Dublin airport as a load of aircraft (from different carriers) are parked up on the far taxiway

Our towing tug drives off

There's a big queue for take-offs. We're parked behind an 'Air Fungus' 737

The oddness of parked aircraft is repeated at Stansted - this time they are all Ryanair. It's very perculiar as Ryanair's business model relies on having its planes in the air
