  • Mood:

I could swallow a handfull of iron filings and puke a better booking system.

The Internet is a wonderful thing. There are lots of sites through which to book transatlantic flights.

In each case, either:
  • the site is down

  • the site is so slow that the transaction cookies time out before I get to the checkout

  • there are script errors

  • you can't choose which flight you want

  • it doesn't work for some other reason

  • The sole, shining, exception to this is the site. It's up, it's quick, it works, you can choose your flight ...

    They don't take switch cards.

    Stuff it. I'm going to swim there.
    No, I'll turn up at the LHR BA booking desk with a wad of cash. That won't excite any suspicion at all.
    Perhaps I'll try again later tonight.
