comment Eurostar arrivals lounge at St Pancras
There's no arrivals lounge. The arrivals area is where they do additional immigration checks, and customs. No-where there to wait, and non-passengers aren't allowed in. Taxi drivers normally wait with name boards just outside the exit from customs, could that be what they mean?

comment How can I find the canonical validity map/area for a UK train PlusBus ticket?
@vclaw I'd be surprised if the bus and train companies sat down and said "let's use naptan id 12345678 as the SW boundary"!

comment What is the typical ratio of paid versus free miles in frequent flyer programs?
Also varies a lot between between both airlines and programs. Crediting a cheap AA flight to AA will give a different number of miles to crediting the same flight to BA or CX or QR!

comment Does the sufficiency of an ID-card for travelling abroad depend on the airline?
RyanAir require passports or ID cards in lots of cases when they aren't legally required, as just one example, so I think the answer is "Yes, some airlines do impose additional requirements"

Various airlines impose additional restrictions above and beyond the legal minimum. One such example is RyanAir wanting passports on domestic flights when no legal requirement exists

comment Are there any places to sleep in Helsinki Vantaa airport the night before an early flight?
The Hilton is basically attached to the terminal, gets good reviews, and sometimes has some good rates when on sale, so you could always look at just booking a room there!

comment Visa needed for UK entry by non-EEA spouse of non-EU but EEA citizen?
If you and your partner want to live in the UK, and have questions about the visa/permit side of that, then the Expats site is probably a better home
