Bournemouth to Paris with ThomsonFly

We booked our flights when they where first announced for £3.00 plus taxes and hoped that Thomsonfly would be flying, Not like the Buzz / Ryanair Saga.

We arrived at Bournemouth 2 hours before check-in and was first in the queue, Checkin was easy as only have hand luggage and proceeded into Bournemouth Changed Terminal.

Brought some mags and sweets in WHSmiths (Not airside) and proceeded down to the Departure gate. No queues like the old days as gates always open now, went through the security and walked into the Old Classroom building through Duty free portacabin and back into the Old Restaurant of the old Terminal. Not alot of change to the Cafe then we boarded "gate number 3".

G-THOG was the plane, very nice and clean with blue leather seats, Departed well on time and with 45 min flight coffee was very quick in comming. Coffee £1.50 pepsi £1.00. Food trolleys still had Deutche BA Titles. The flight was 1/2 empty or 1/2 full

Landed at Charles De Gualle on Satalite 1 in terminal 1 and quickly passed through customs.

On return to Charles De Gualle we arrived early caught the bus around the terminals have a little tour around before checking in and making way to satalite 1 where you can see aircraft departing from in front of you.

Flight back was very full, Seat 13 A and F where on the Escape door and had loads of leg room and returned at Bournemouth 1 hour later.

Hopefully you have got this far and hope this made sence.

Overall a very good trip and look forward to flying with ThomsonFly again soon.

Very good report, Thomsonfly sound like a good low co, and seem to be doing very well in terms of loads from all 3 airports. Long may it continue :)

Can you explain what your meaning "a Git Canny"

Translation, It's a very good report lad

Here's a Geordie dictionary

bairn 'child'
burn 'stream'
bonny 'pretty'
muckle 'very'
keek 'peep'
howay 'come on'
sweer 'obstinate'
donnered ' stupid'
clarts, clarty 'mud, muddy'
gulley 'large knife'
cuddy 'horse'
sackless 'stupid, useless'
sneck 'door latch, nose'
stot 'bounce'
spuggy 'sparrow'
spelk 'splinter'
glaiky 'slow-witted'
howk 'dig'
dottle 'cigarette ash, droppings'
cushat 'wood pigeon'
hadaway 'go away, you're kidding'


Other typical Geordie words are also found further south, and appear to be part of a general Northern English lexicon:

aye 'yes'
gob 'mouth'
give over 'stop it'
chuffed 'happy'
wisht 'be quiet'
nowt 'nothing'
nigh on 'nearly'
bullets 'sweets'
stanners 'stony river margin'
lonnen 'a lane'
chare 'a lane'
pet 'term of address for females' (e.g. "thanks, pet")
mairk 'maggot, pest'
gowk 'apple core'
dunsh 'push, bump'
deek 'see, look at'
bowk 'belch'
lop 'flea, louse or their eggs'
ket 'rubbish'
marra 'friend, mate'
bait 'food'
bubble 'weep'
hoppings 'funfair'
proggy mat 'kind of woven or patchwork mat'
hacky 'dirty'
lowp 'jump'
bool 'wheel (e.g. pram)'
ten o'clock 'morning snack'
hoy 'throw'
hockle 'spit'
cree '(bird) cage'
kiff 'very good (see folk-singer Ian Anderson's song "Muckle kiff")'
get 'stupid person'
netty 'toilet'
The word canny is widely used in Geordie with a variety of meanings, including adverbial 'very'. Varnigh is in common use, meaning 'almost', or 'very nearly'. Other dialect words such as penker 'marble' and plodge 'wade through mud' may have an onomatopoeic element, while a Romani origin has been suggested for some words such as gadgie 'chap' and baari 'excellent'. I have also seen references to an alleged Romani borrowing jugal 'dog', although I have never heard the word used in speech. Some indigenous terms are well known from local songs or legends, but may not often be heard in conversation today. Examples are singing hinny 'a kind of pancake', worm 'monster', mazer 'an eccentric', girdle cake 'another pancake'.
