comment Accessible travel by Tube from Heathrow to Kings Cross
I wouldn't say the tube is the best - probably a taxi is the best, especially if you have trouble with cases - the tube is cramped, accessibility notwithstanding. But a taxi is, of course, expensive.

comment Returning after 30-day stay in Abu Dhabi
Ok, fair point. Nevertheless, it's important because the rules don't (for example) apply to the UK/Ireland. But I accept your chastisement :)

To be pedantic, it's Schengen which does this, not the EU.

comment First Class Amenities
@Gagravarr that's really not true. Most long-haul US airlines' first-class, in this day-and-age, are certainly competitive (where they exist, many international US planes only have Economy and Business). They may not be the best, but they're not atrocious. You might be thinking of short-haul (typically US domestic) first-class, which is a totally different kettle of fish and I don't think is what Itai is getting at.

comment Which countries apply the EU rail passenger rights domestically?
Interesting, comprehensive list, thank you. Appears that the UK does not decide to apply these rules to domestic trains, at least not universally.

comment How long does it take to get into London from its airports?
I agree with Ulkoma - you need to be more specific. Even the "central" area would make a big difference - crossing it on the tube can take 30 mins at some times. For me, living relatively centrally (but on the east side), LCY is my nearest airport. If I lived next to Paddington, LHR would be a no-brainer. London is too large to give a general answer.

Yeah, my bad. I meant to say Emerald.

As already explained in Gagravarr's answer above, this is only true for full fare tickets.

comment Would a non-business traveler ever benefit from collecting air miles, as compared to simply buying the cheapest ticket available?
@reirab agreed, fair point.
