    I do but perhaps you will allow me to combine a sense of humour with the events.

    Maybe we should consider leaving Chinese travel arrangements with the Chinese minority share holders.

    It's the paperwork to enter China airspace apparently Thomas Cooke getting the blame as a company they are currently not in a good way and a major shareholder is planning to refinance, the shareholder who will become the majority holder is Chinese

    Weird sense of humour - I’d call it backtracking

    Absolutely correct.

    I hope these flights don’t make it out and we have to cancel the pre-season tour and we can organise a few games with the likes of Girona or Sporting at the CFA.

    I fucking hate these pre-season world tours. Thousands of miles of travelling and playing on cow fields or baseball pitches when they should be training for optimal season starting fitness.

    I’m sure Pep and his management team hate it all too. You only have to see what he did with Bayern the Summer he was in control of pre-season: a training camp in the Alps, a training camp on the Med and two tournaments in Germany.

    They have more than one aircraft. The 767 is one of the most reliable aircraft and is still in service with major airlines even at the age it is. Etihad do not have spare aircraft hanging around as they are schedule airline. The Aeronexus 767 is set out in ViP layout which Etihad don't have https://aeronexus.aero/gallery

    OS & City Twitter unchanged and still can't find anything about it on SSN, BBC News or their websites and no mention on local news just now either

    Is this definitely Thomas Cook's fault, because their majority shareholder are Chinese, something dodgy is going on.

    At least there will be plenty of room
    On the guaranteed Thomas Cook flights for Euro Aways!
