Super-Size Me

We recently reported that Uzbekistan airways were to start weighing passengers before flights alongside their hand luggage, the move was introduced to help “ensure flight safety” exactly how is unclear, as they have yet to announce the consequences of the weigh-in but have guaranteed “full confidentiality of the results”.

 

Well now consumer champions in America have launched a campaign to ensure there will be a mandatory seat size legally protected, their reasoning is that it’s basic human right to room when flying, given that over the last four decades the space between seats has shrunk by four inches in economy, and forgive us, arses have got bigger, people in the western world are flying more frequently, mainly due to low-cost carriers, we’re not too optimistic.

 

It’s not quite the Pope Mobile

We would love to have a go in the Pope Mobile, apart from the mandatory kissing and blessing of several babies on route, and besides it could be a health and safety issue, they might get caught up in our rosary beads.

 

Perhaps the next best thing is a ride on the Popes personal railway. Costing 30 Euros, which includes access to the Vatican museums. The train leaves near St Peter’s Basilica and travels to the Pope’s summer palace Castel Gandolfi.
