comment Flybe just cancelled my return flight. Will they refund that part of the trip?
Since the flights are all within the EU, EU-261 will also dictate the very minimum they have to offer in this situation

comment Changing money for Ethiopia. Where can I get the best rates?
Can you clarify what about this situation makes it different from the many other "where should I change my money" questions we have on the site?

comment What will be open during Christmas in Bergen?
The Seven Mountains will still be there, so if nothing else you can enjoy some stunning hikes!

comment Does the new Doha Hamad International still offer “alcoholic left luggage”, and how does it work?
That page says you're not allowed to bring alcohol into Qatar, which I'm already aware of. The old airport used to let you leave alcohol "before entering" Qatar, for collection "after leaving", which was a strange and unusual but helpful setup, with the booze staying inside the airport

comment Does the new Doha Hamad International still offer “alcoholic left luggage”, and how does it work?
That would seem to imply that the new airport doesn't support holding+claiming of alcohol for tourists on a layover like the old airport did, but ideally I'd like to find something that explicitly references that case either way to be sure!

comment Does the new Doha Hamad International still offer “alcoholic left luggage”, and how does it work?
Apparently, the old airport offered a service to look after your alcohol for you before customs, with a claim on departure, I'm trying to find out if the new one does too or not. (I explicitly don't want to try to take it with me into Doha, I'm trying to see if I can leave the alcohol "air side" while I visit Qatar for a bit)

comment Does the new Doha Hamad International still offer “alcoholic left luggage”, and how does it work?
Ideally I'd like to bring stuff with me that's not easily available beyond the region it's made in, so wouldn't be available in Doha duty free, if that's possible

comment How far can you realistically travel across potentially rough water in an inflatable dinghy?
I think your big variable could be currents and tides. What's fine on one stretch of water could be lethal on a different one, especially one with strong tidal flows and currents. Sadly for you, many of the scottish islands are well enough known for those that they're piloting tidal electric power generation off some of them!

comment Travel times during peak hours in Los Angeles
If you can give instructions on using one of those for "what time do I need to plan to leave tomorrow, to go from (eg) a hotel I've never been to, to (eg) an office I've never been to the other side of town, roughly" then I think we have an answer!

comment Travel times during peak hours in Los Angeles
@Karlson I think it could probably be edited to fit within our rules - just needs to stress that it's for when you're planning travel to a city you don't know, and are trying to find out ways to estimate the likely travel in advance

comment Brussels to Les Arcs for skiing, other than by car?
As per the help center, this would really be better as two independent questions - travel + beginner-friendly-ness

comment I want to take a bus from Dusseldorf Airport to NH Hotel City Centre - please tell me what would be the bus number
Google Maps doesn't always seem to know about German trains, so can often suggest odd routings by public transport using only ones it does know about
