comment Oyster card vs Travelcard from Woking for a weekend
@ClickRick Even if you had an Oyster card already, you have to explicitly touch in with it to start using it. You can't just start a Pay-As-You-Go Oyster journey without doing that, so you can't use a Single from Woking to Clapham Junction and Oyster from Clapham Junction to Waterloo without getting a train that stops at Clapham Junction and getting off there.

@ClickRick You'd have had to get off the train and probably gone through the barriers anyway at the point where you switched from the tickets to Oyster so you could have bought the Oyster at that point.

comment Are there still any advantages to using an Oyster card for travel in London?
@ShaunMcDonald Thanks, I've fixed the post. I'd always thought they were the same. Maybe the changes at the start of this year only applied to the Annual Gold Card.

Fix link as per comment - I hadn't realised that the annual gold card area is different from the network railcard area

comment Is it safe for a commercial flight to have Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan on its flight route?
If the Iranian government decided to ban overflights in advance, they could do so and people would just have to respect it. But they'd be losing the fees they can otherwise charge for them. If they decided to force down an aircraft after previously giving it permission to overfly, that would probably cause a serious international incident.

comment What's the quickest way from London Kings Cross to Euston, by foot or tube?
Obviously if you arrive at Platforms 9-11 to begin with, then just go straight out of the doors on the right after the ticket barriers.

comment Under what situations can a passenger be restrained by flight crew?
The verdict you quote in the Meeker case is founded on the wording of 49 USC § 1472(j), and not 14 CFR 125.328. The wording of § 1472(j) is subtly different from the wording of the regulation you quote above, in that it "applies to anyone who 'assaults, intimidates, or threatens . . . so as to interfere with the performance' of duties. " - i.e. there have to be both assault/intimidation/threats leading to interference. Also, the "interference" in the case was substantially more than just non-violent disobedience; the pilot had to come and help restrain him because he was being violent.
