Klopp insists Liverpool must stay calm at the top

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists his team must remain calm if they’re to stay remain at the top of the Premier League table.The Reds overtook Manchester City at the top after a comprehensive victory over Bournemouth with City also suffering a 2-0 loss away at Chelsea.“We will not change. For us, there is no reason to. We can still read the calendar – it is December, it is not even Christmas. The season ends in May.” Klopp said, according to the club’s official website.“We will not get carried away. We know how difficult it is. We knew how the Bournemouth game how difficult it was in that game. And the next [games] are coming. It is absolutely no problem..”“We are not the most experienced side but we know our way at least and that is exactly which way we will go all the time. But the league is not too important in the moment because we play tomorrow night against Napoli and the position in the table doesn’t help you too much.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.Speaking about keeping clean sheets, Klopp said: “If I say now it’s the quality of the Champions League, that’s only half the truth.”“I think there are a few teams in the Premier League who are stronger than, for example, and with all my respect, Belgrade.”“They scored twice against us and they deserved these goals that night. So, it is just the competition. We always try to defend in the best way we can, but the quality of the opposing sides is not to ignore.”“If you think about the game Napoli played against us, it was actually the opposite of being brilliant from us, but they stayed on track and wanted to win it until the last second. A draw was not even in their mind, they wanted to win it. Maybe in another game, another team would have accepted the draw, but they didn’t. It is all about the quality of the opponents, for sure.”last_img read more

Medical examiner confirms 10yearold died with heroin fentanyl in system

first_imgMIAMI (WSVN) – A medical examiner has confirmed that a 10-year-old boy, who died in June, had two powerful opioids in his system.An autopsy revealed fifth-grader Alton Banks had both heroin and fentanyl in his system when he died on June 23. Banks was visiting a community pool in Miami’s Overtown neighborhood where he began vomiting after coming home and was found unconscious that evening.First responders said they are doing everything they can to save those who come into contact with the pain killer. However, it is so potent that many people have passed away after touching the opioid.Related: Powerful opioid suspected in 10-year-old Miami boy’s death“This is just further validation that we have an incredible crisis in our community,” said Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez.In July, detectives said they did not believe Banks got the drugs from home.Banks is now one of the youngest victims of what Fernandez and area law enforcement is calling an opioid crisis.Drug dealers commonly mix the powerful painkiller with heroin to amplify the effects. The drug has been used to treat the terminally ill, but fentanyl is so powerful that it can be ingested by simply touching or smelling small amounts.The victim’s mother told the Miami Herald that her son was a fun kid who wanted to become an engineer and loved the Carolina Panthers.Miami Fire Rescue said they are seeing more of these kinds of instances affecting people of all ages, mainly in the Downtown area.“It’s a big crisis. Not only in the City of Miami but nationwide,” said Miami Fire Rescue Captain Christian Guzman.The Miami-Dade State Attorney has begun an investigation into how the boy got in contact with the drugs.The State Attorney’s Office said no one has been arrested in this case.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Folio Honors Top Women in Media

first_imgOn Thursday June 9, Folio: hosted its annual Top Women in Media awards luncheon, where a crowd of over 200 attendees gathered at the Yale Club in New York City to celebrate the 102 honorees’ accomplishments, often achieved against a glass ceiling in an industry traditionally dominated by men.  The sense of camaraderie extended to each honoree’s team, a feeling that was first noted by Kathleen Connolly, executive vice president of sales at UBM Tech Events & Media: “My team has its own hashtag, #Collab. And that’s what we decided to do, really try for collaboration across all media, print and digital, to drive that engagement.” Despite the different questions, there was a theme of pride and camaraderie throughout the afternoon—of women uniting together to celebrate each other and their fight for a future of equal pay and opportunity, among other rights. Among those challenges, the importance of maintaining a connection with readers, whether through traditional print magazines or other digital or mobile platforms, was often cited. Stacy Shoemaker Rauen, editor-in-chief of Hospitality Design, noted, “Our goal is to be the number one connector in the space. I think the challenge for 2016 is how to do that effectively, to make meaningful connections for our advertisers and readers.” The honorees were split into six different categories: corporate visionaries, director-level doers, entrepreneurs, mentors, industry leadership, and rising stars. When the honorees received their awards, they shared their answer to a question specific to their category. Folio:’s vice president Tony Silber and associate editor Greg Dool hosted the event. As each honoree made her way to the stage at the front of the room to accept her award, Silber or Dool briefly shared her accomplishments. A screen to the left of the stage showed each honoree’s photo and job title, and occasionally a video played for an honoree in which staff, friends, or family highlighted her accomplishments.  In a similar vein, a number of the rising stars honorees highlighted how proud they are of the growth and recognition they amassed for their brands. Liza Haar, group managing editor at UBM Medica, who joined the brand as editor of Diagnostic Imaging, said, “B2B publications have their own unique audience challenges, and on top of that I really didn’t know my audience so I immersed myself in the field…and I’m proud to say that today I have a growing and engaged audience.” Many of the women said that their favorite thing about working in media is the people with whom they work, as well as the fast-paced nature of the industry and the challenges they face. While all of the honorees addressed different aspects of the magazine media industry, its challenges and its future, above all they emphasized the importance of magazine media and journalism in their lives, and the importance of encouraging young women to enter the industry. Remy Spreeuw, publisher of 5280 Publishing, summed it up perfectly, saying, “I just want to say on behalf of the next generation, reciprocate and mentor.” You can see the full list of honorees and their profiles here. Elizabeth Line, VP of activation and operations of 23 Stories at Condé Nast, attributed her success in media to “the examples set by others in the industry. Many people I actually don’t know personally, many of you in the room—I am always so inspired by people who are breaking down barriers in their own industry.”  Janine Kahn, executive editorial director of digital at Lumina Media, highlighted this feeling, saying, “One of my favorite things is just how it’s such a female dominated space. It’s incredible. I’ve never once felt that there was something I couldn’t do, that anything was off limits. At Lumina Media, I run a team that’s about 90% women, and I want them to feel the same way—that there’s no limits to what they can do.” It was also notable how many of the honorees cited other people who have faced and broken down barriers, both in and out of the media industry, as inspirations. Two guest speakers also joined on stage: Liz Vaccariello, editor at large of Reader’s Digest, and Sherin Pierce, publisher and vice president of The Old Farmer’s Almanac. Liza Haar Other honorees shared lessons they learned from past mistakes, such as Elizabeth Green, CEO and founder of Brief Media LLC. One of her most memorable mistakes was when she fired the company’s second biggest client. “But I will tell you the hard work that we did that year and the work that it caused us to do, evaluate every process, every position, every resource, was followed by 5 years of consecutive double digit growth,” Green said. The event ended with a group photo of the honorees on stage with their awards. During the event, Folio: raffled off a ticket for the upcoming Folio: Show, which Elisa Camahort Page, chief community officer at SheKnows Media, won.last_img read more

Is the iconic commercial aircraft Boeing 747 being retired

first_imgSeveral airlines are retiring their 747 fleet. In Picture: British Airways Boeing 747-400 takes off from London Heathrow Airport, England.Wiki Commons/Adrian PingstoneOne of the most iconic US aircraft, the Boeing 747, dubbed a symbol of American ingenuity, is facing retirement. Boeing has announced that it may not produce any more of these jumbo jets, 45 years after it was first deployed in service.Reason The huge commercial jet is finding few buyers now, since it guzzles more fuel. Also, with improvement in engine technology, two engines are considered more economical than the four engines found in the 747.Who is retiring it? Two of the biggest commercial airliners in US — United and Delta — have said they will be retiring their 747 fleet. United announced on November 17 that it would retire all 20 of the 747s in its fleet by October 2018. Delta too has said that it would be retire 747 by the end of 2017. Cathay Pacific has also given similar indications. History Started as a military project, the 747 was promoted by Juan Trippe, the then president of Pan American World Airways (Pan Am).The development of the aircraft was a technical and financial challenge and those on the project were billed “The Incredibles.” Boeing had to build an assembly plant for the giant airliner.The first aircraft was rolled out in September 1968, with the first flight of the new aircraft taking place in February 1969. Boeing rolled out its first 747 aircraft in September 1968. In Picture: The Boeing 747, being displayed to the public for the first time.Wiki Commons/SAS Scandinavian AirlinesThe first 747 entered service with Pan Am airline on its New York-London route in January 1970. Pan Am was the first airline to buy 747s. In Picture: A Boeing 747 of Pan Am at Zurich Airport.Wiki Commons/Eduard MarmetWhy iconic The Boeing 747 is one of the most recognisable jumbo jets that revolutionised long-distance air travel around the world and featured “wide-body.” It was one of the fastest airliners in the world, reaching Mach.92.One of iconic images has been the modified 747, carrying NASA space shuttle piggyback style. The aircraft could seat over 300 passengers and featured four prominent engines.The US president’s Air Force One uses a modified version of the commercial 747-8.What would be flown instead of the 747s? United airlines would be flying the newer Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Boeing 777 models. Delta would be using the new Airbus A330s that have been delivered to it and also the new Airbus A350s.Now only a few airlines are ordering the 747s. Marketplace quoted Scott Hamilton, an aviation consultant, as saying that Lufthansa and Korean airlines are among those who are still ordering it. The order is about 30 or 40 planes between them.Apart from the above airlines, UPS, world’s largest package delivery company, has ordered 14 Boeing 747-8 cargo freighters and took an option for another 14.Hence, it may still be some years before the Boeing shuts down its 747-8 production line.last_img read more

2m hajj pilgrims converge on Makka

first_imgThis long exposure photograph shows Muslim pilgrims circumambulating the Kaaba, Islam`s holiest shrine, at the Grand Mosque in Saudi Arabia`s holy city of Mecca on August 27, 2017, prior to the start of the annual Hajj pilgrimage. AFPTwo million Muslims from across the globe are converging on Makka in Saudi Arabia for the hajj pilgrimage, a religious duty and for some pilgrims the journey of a lifetime.This year sees the return of pilgrims from Shiite Iran, regional rival to Sunni powerhouse Saudi Arabia, and comes with the Gulf mired in political crisis and Islamic State group jihadists squeezed in Iraq and Syria.”I’m so excited because many people dream of coming to this place,” said 47-year-old Eni from Indonesia, her face framed in a sand-coloured veil trimmed with lace.”We feel more religious when we leave this place,” she said.Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim nation, and it also provides the largest number of pilgrims for the hajj.Eni’s compatriots throng Jeddah airport 80 kilometres (50 miles) west of Makka, as tens of thousands of pilgrims pass through the gateway to the hajj every day.But Eni is almost oblivious to the hubbub that surrounds her as she studies her Koran in the oppressive heat, pearls of sweat beading her face.”After my first pilgrimage I felt I wanted to come back to feel myself close to him,” she said of the Prophet Mohammed before returning her attention to Islam’s holy book.The hajj is one of the five pillars of the Islamic faith, which every Muslim is required to complete at least once in a lifetime if he or she has the means to do so.”This year we expect around two million pilgrims,” Abdelmajeed Mohammad Al-Afghani, director of hajj and umra (lesser pilgrimage) affairs, told AFP.- Politics and the hajj -Iranians are back after not attending in 2016 following a deadly Makka stampede the previous year that killed nearly 2,300 pilgrims.It was the worst catastrophe in the history of the hajj, with 464 people from the Islamic republic among the dead.Following the disaster, Tehran railed against Saudi Arabia’s organisation of the pilgrimage.The two countries then severed diplomatic relations in January 2016 after the Saudi embassy in Tehran was ransacked by a crowd protesting against the execution in the kingdom of a Shiite religious dignitary.Analysts say that neither Riyadh nor Tehran has any wish to prolong the dispute.”To politicise an event like this does no good,” according to Slimane Zeghidour, author of “La vie quotidienne à La Mecque: De Mahomet à nos jours” (Daily Life in Makka from Mohammed to Today).Accusations of the hajj being politicised have marred the region for some time.For nearly three months, the Gulf has been embroiled in its worst ever political crisis, with Saudi Arabia and its allies facing off against Qatar, which they accuse of being too close to Iran and backing extremism.A boycott imposed on the small but gas-rich emirate since June 5 has resulted in Qatar’s land, sea and air links being badly affected.This has also had a knock-on effect on hajj-related travel, although Riyadh announced it was relaxing certain restrictions for pilgrims.- ‘Every time it’s different’ -In the arrivals hall at Jeddah airport, determined pilgrims walk hastily to avoid losing contact with other members of their group.”I’m so happy to be a part of it this year,” said 43-year-old Nigerian Mohammed Said, in the seamless two-piece white garment or “ihram” worn by male pilgrims.”I want to do it every year if I can afford it,” added Said who is in Saudi Arabia for his third hajj.”Every time it’s different — it’s like I’m doing it for the first time.”For author Zeghidour, going on the hajj takes pilgrims to another level altogether.”The pilgrim has to run, move, and perform several stages” of the ritual.”It is so physically and mentally demanding that he doesn’t have time to think about the crisis in the Gulf. For him this is literature.”Many pilgrims come from Asia or Africa, far from the Middle East, and they come to a place where they can try to forget their lives back home.”Murderous jihadist attacks across the world in recent years will be on the minds of many pilgrims, especially those from Iraq and Syria where the IS has suffered a series of setbacks.But the threat from extremists has not put off pilgrims such as Fatima, from Perpignan in southern France.”I’ve been waiting to go on this journey for a long time,” she said, wearing a red veil like the other people in her group.last_img

Texas Lawmakers Consider Declaring Fantasy Sports Legal

first_img Share Graphic by Todd Wiseman / The Texas TribuneA year after Texas’ attorney general questioned whether fantasy sports are legal, state lawmakers are considering proclaiming that they are.In a non-binding opinion in January 2016, Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton equated paid fantasy sports sites to online gambling, which is illegal.But one fantasy football-playing Democrat in the Legislature has filed a measure that he says would protect Texans who play the online games from repercussion. The measure will be considered in a hearing on Monday, and a Republican has filed a similar bill in the Senate. The proposal by state Rep. Richard Peña Raymond, D-Laredo, would classify fantasy sports as games of skill, not of chance. Eight members of the Texas House — including Raymond — have signed on to the bill as authors or co-authors of House Bill 1457. In an interview prior to the hearing, Raymond said he was inspired to file his bill after talking to constituents who worried the government would take away their right to play the game. “I play fantasy football. I have a lot of friends that do,” Raymond said. “I filed the bill just to clarify, but I think [fantasy football] is legal already … If you don’t think fantasy football is a game of skill, then you haven’t played it.”Fantasy sports allows fans to draft real players from various sporting leagues to create a fictional team. The players’ real-time statistics are then compiled and the team with the highest overall ranking wins. Fans can track their teams through web sites or apps.Ten states have passed laws declaring fantasy sports legal contests of skill, according to the Texas Fantasy Sports Alliance.Paxton’s opinion suggested paid fantasy sports sites such as DraftKings and FanDuel — which offer Texans the potential to win money through their virtual teams — violated the state’s prohibition on betting on games of chance. While critics say fantasy sports sites are hubs for illegal online gambling, others contend the games are based on skill and are therefore legitimate.“It is beyond reasonable dispute that daily fantasy leagues involve an element of chance regarding how a selected player will perform on game day,” the opinion states. Free fantasy sport sites — like those hosted by Yahoo, ESPN and the NFL — are not in dispute.Raymond said Paxton’s opinion “kind of muddied up the water a little bit about whether or not people could play fantasy football in Texas.”Paxton’s office declined to comment on Raymond’s legislation since it is currently pending.A spokesman for the Texas Fantasy Sports Alliance, a group backed by FanDuel and DraftKings, said the organization is working to convince Paxton that the companies’ operations are legal. He also said he was glad Raymond’s bill has support from both sides of the aisle. “A lot of representatives acknowledge that fantasy sports is not a partisan issue, it’s a Texas issue,” spokesman Scott Dunaway said, adding that there are more than 4 million Texans who play fantasy sports each year. “We’ve been playing fantasy sports for decades.”“I promise you, fantasy football is a lot more like chess than the roulette wheel,” Raymond added.State Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham, filed a companion bill in the upper chamber. Her proposal has not been scheduled for a hearing.Read related Tribune coverage:A state lawmaker has filed legislation to make sure Texans can play fantasy sports online without repercussions.Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton wants a lawsuit filed against his office by fantasy sports site DraftKings moved to Travis County.While placing bets in fantasy sports leagues may involve skill, there is still an element of chance that would equate such leagues with illegal gambling in Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a nonbinding opinion.This article originally appeared in The Texas Tribune at https://www.texastribune.org/2017/04/03/bill-would-clarify-legality-fantasy-sports-receive-first-hearing/.Texas Tribune mission statementThe Texas Tribune is a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.last_img read more

Researchers said the findings lend support to regular mammography screening in women ages 75 and older.The value of mammography screening in older women has been subject to much debate in recent years. The American Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms for women age 75 and older as long as they are in good health, while the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) does not recommend mammography screening in this age group, citing insufficient evidence to evaluate benefits and harms.A lack of research is chiefly responsible for the divergent recommendations, according to Judith A. Malmgren, Ph.D., affiliate assistant professor at the University of Washington’s School of Public Health and Community Medicine in Seattle. “There are no studies on women age 75 and older, despite the fact that they are at the highest risk for breast cancer,” she said.Malmgren and her research partner, Henry Kaplan, M.D., from the Swedish Cancer Institute in Seattle, recently looked at the impact of mammography detection on older women by studying data from an institutional registry that includes more than 14,000 breast cancer cases with 1,600 patients over age 75.The majority of mammography-detected cases were early stage, while physician- and patient-detected cancers were more likely to be advanced stage disease. Mammography-detected invasive breast cancer patients were more often treated with lumpectomy and radiation and had fewer mastectomies and less chemotherapy than patient- or physician-detected cases.Mammography detection was associated with a 97 percent five-year disease-specific invasive cancer survival rate, compared with 87 percent for patient- or physician-detected invasive cancers.“Mammography enables detection when breast cancer is at an early stage and is easier to treat with more tolerable options,” Malmgren said. “In this study, older women with mammography-detected invasive cancer had a 10 percent reduction in breast cancer disease-specific mortality after five years.”The early detection provided by mammography is particularly important in older women, Malmgren noted, because they cannot easily tolerate the chemotherapy that is commonly used to treat more advanced breast cancers. “Longer life expectancies for women also increase the importance of early detection,” she said. “A 75-year-old woman today has a 13-year life expectancy. You only need five years of life expectancy to make mammography screening worthwhile.”Malmgren acknowledged the potential costs of mammography, such as those associated with false-positive results, are an important consideration when weighing screening benefits. However, she said that false-positive findings are less common in older women.“It’s easy to detect a cancer earlier in older women because breast density is not an issue,” Malmgren said. “And mammography is not expensive, so doing it every other year would not add a lot of cost to healthcare.”The researchers hope the study results help women and their physicians make better-informed decisions about mammography, ultimately leading to lower mortality rates. “Breast cancer survival in younger women has improved dramatically over last 20 years, but that improvement has not been seen in older women,” Malmgren concluded.For more information: www.radiology.rsna.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | October 01, 2014 Study Reports Mammography Benefits Women Over 75 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Technology | Mammography Reporting Software | July 25, 2019 Hologic Partners With MagView to Develop Unifi EQUIP Solution Hologic announced a partnership with mammography information solutions provider MagView to develop Unifi EQUIP, an… read more Technology | Breast Biopsy Systems | July 24, 2019 Fujifilm Releases Tomosynthesis Biopsy Option for Aspire Cristalle Mammography System Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A.

Videla denies Argentine dictatorship baby thefts

first_imgVidela led the military junta from 1976 to 1981, following a coup that he staged with other military officials. He is now on trial for kidnapping and hiding minors under the age of 10 during the dictatorship. Argentina’s Supreme Court struck two amnesty laws in 2005 that had protected military officials from dictatorship-era human rights crimes. Since then, many of the officials have been jailed.Prosecutors are asking for a 50-year prison sentence for Videla, who was sentenced to a second life sentence in 2011 for human rights abuses. The prosecutors argue that the military regime set up detention centers where mothers were kept until they gave birth.During closing arguments Tuesday, Videla said he was a political prisoner and called the case a farce set up to satisfy “a quest for revenge” by those who were “defeated by the military” in the 1970s.“I will assume under protest the unjust sentence that I might be given for my contribution in the achievement of national harmony,” Videla said.The trial began Feb. 2011 but the sentence date has not been set yet. Also standing trial is Reynaldo Bignone, the last president during the dictatorship, as well as several former military officials and a doctor who assisted the pregnant women in captivity. “If the removal of an underage minor took place, it was not because of an implicit order . framed in a systematic plan and coming from the upper ranks of the armed forces during the years of the war against terrorism,” Videla said. With his thick glasses, white hair and mustache, Videla looked more like a grandfather than the former strongman who was sentenced to life in prison in 2010 for kidnapping, torture and murder.Videla continued: “All the pregnant ones referred to in the suit and by prosecutors were active militants of a mechanism of terror and many of them used their child embryos as human shields when they operated as fighters.”Human rights groups estimate that up to 30,000 people were killed in a government-sponsored crackdown on leftist dissidents during the so-called Dirty War. Official estimates put the number at 13,000 _ many of them women, whose babies were kidnapped and adopted by army families or allies of the regime and illegally registered.The activist group Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo says some 500 children were born while their mothers were in captivity. The group has helped 106 of them reunite with their biological families. The kidnapping of babies from mothers in captivity is considered a crime against humanity. Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk At the time of the Dirty War, the junta denied any knowledge of the baby thefts, let alone responsibility for the disappearance of political prisoners. In public, the U.S. government also was circumspect, even as the junta’s death squads kidnapped and killed its opponents.A former U.S. diplomat testified earlier this year that U.S. officials knew Argentina’s military regime was taking babies from jailed dissidents during the Dirty War and that it appeared to be a systematic effort at the time.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

The guide stressed that “generally” airlines are able to resume normal operations quite quickly “depending on the disruption” and travellers who rush to rebook a delayed flight usually end up worse-off than those who stick it out.“By waiting, you will also avoid the frustration of the inevitable lengthy on-hold queues that occur immediately after an event and, potentially, additional charges that may apply if you choose to amend a booking that is still months away,” the guide read.Booking or dealing with an agent is the second best resource for a traveller to have on hand during travel turbulence.According to the guide an agent will not only help rearrange bookings, but also assist travellers bypass hours of waiting on the phone for call centres to pick up.“During the recent Qantas flight groundings, Flight Centre’s corporate travel teams, FCm Travel Solutions and Corporate Traveller, spent an entire day ensuring that they called all clients flying with Qantas,” Flight Centre New Zealand executive general manager Mike Friends said.  “While the first priority was helping Flight Centre customers, the company was also able to help other travellers who had either booked directly or with online travel agencies and needed urgent assistance.” Keeping stress levels down and not rushing ahead will also lead to the realisation of step number three, look for alternative flights.If needed home or at a meeting desperately, Flight Centre said the “solution may be as simple as switching to an alternative airline”.Travellers will be able to bypass cancellations by looking for alternative flight routes or even other means of transport including charter flights, buses, ferries or hire cars.Getting to know your airline and insurance policies is another key tactic to keep the big bucks in your pocket.According to the agent’s Group, travellers are often unaware of “their rights if flights are cancelled or delayed for extended periods”.The Group’s five tips read that while airlines generally accommodate travellers during flight disruptions, it is not always the case and it “pays” to have a backup travel insurance policy.While the final step to ease your way through flight disruptions is to always remember the difference between cancelling and amending your booking.“Historically, when an issue has arisen to temporarily disrupt travel plans, airlines have generally been willing to waive the booking amendment fees that would normally apply,” FLT travel tips read. “This has allowed travellers to either postpone their holidays and travel later or to switch to alternative destinations without incurring significant costs. “Charges can, however, increase substantially if you choose to cancel your plans altogether, which is generally the least common option for travellers.“If you’re thinking of cancelling or amending, it pays to weigh up the potential costs.” Recently caught up in flight disruptions?  Tell us how you survived the ordeal.
