    I'll have another look, they are from Spain, they don't look the same as the Thai plants I saw.

    Hi Guys

    Can anyone share with me their experience and procedure of booking oneway flight for their wife from Bangkok to England. Using your own Credit Card ? I have been getting a bit confused as to what is involved. I have been checking Emirates and they seem to say that you can only book a flight with your Credit Card if its the person whose name is on the Credit Card is flying with them ?

    Any advice and experiences would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Gazz

    British Airways do not require the card holder to be the traveller too. At the end of the booking process you are asked if the person paying is the one travelling - just be sure to answer 'no'.

    Jet have a procedure if the cardholder isn't present. The passenger needs to have a copy of the card used to purchase the ticket with the flight details on it as well.
    I scanned my card, blanked out the security number, printed both sides of it onto an A4 sheet, wrote the flight details on it along with a short sentence saying that I bought the ticket for my wife, signed it, scanned it and emailed it to my wife. She printed it out and took it with her.

    In the end, they didn't ask for it but sods law may have kicked in if she hadn't had it

    TG will ok it if you pay at their office but if you book with one of their accredited agents i.e. www.westeast.com they can clear it too but I notice you mention Emirates so is that your intended carrier? as Tobias mentions BA, biff goes for Jet and me TG

    This is correct with Emirates, but last year I paid with my debit card for her ticket and didn't say anything. This year in May, they would not accept me paying with my card, either she had to pay with her card or pay in cash, I went to the atm and paid in cash. It seems Emirates have changed their policy.

    How are you getting on with the Aloe, has it helped any?
    Just started using body shop shaving cream with the old badgers brush. Can already see difference in the skin after 2 days. Another option your could look at.

    I went the doctors and he gave me Epaderm cream, I mix that with Neutrogena deep moisture body lotion, seems to be working. The aloe vera lotion I bought seems to be too perfumed, so she is using it now.

    With regards to Emirates, it is correct that you can not book online without showing the credit/debit card at the check-in desk, I had this problem last week when I booked the wife and son's ticket, all I did was telephone/email the travel agent I normally use for my Thai travel and they book it for you no problem (also £200 cheaper than from Emirates on-line price). I was told the reason Emirates have changed their policy is due to credit card fraud.

    I blame the UK climate Jim, never had as many problems with the Bangkok hot and humid climate with my skin.

    You can book via Expedia.com (not uk) with your own credit card too (usually with a few free Nectar points too).

    I know a Norwegian fella who lives permanently in LOS and he has pretty bad psoriasis but insists it's under better control here than Norway due to the climate.

    Depending on the type of psoriasis sunlight, or rather a plentiful supply of UVB or UVA is extremely benefical and whats going on in your head is important too.
    I had UV treatment and it fixed me up a treat. My coverage was 95% of my body. I am so glad of that machine.

    I've been reading through here as my gf arrives, for the first time, next week. I think I've got it all covered.

    Maybe I missed it, but no ones mentioned bum guns! I picked one up on EBay for £20, easy to install and sure to make her stay a bit easier.

    Not sure what thread it was on but they were discussed at length with photo's.
    I recall there could be be problems installing them depending on the water system in your house.

    Unless the water's too cold. If there's a high-pitched scream from the bathroom the first time she goes in there, run!

    I T'eed it straight into the cold feed for the toilet with a ball valve fitted inline , maybe i need to adjust the pressure as it left two pools of water either side of the toilet every time Pan used it. No complaints as to the water temp except from me as every time i got in the shower the temp had been turned down from my pleasent but scolding to a rather icey cold similar to the standard Thai " bath".

    I installed one of these. Straight out of the feed to the cistern, the wife never companies about the temperature all through winter. She's made of stronger stuff than I am!
