Why would immigration meet a private flight from the UK?

Ironically, I found this quite useful and it prompted me to get my license.

The pilot was Chris Wench, Jersey aviation legend.

Good luck!

If you mean Chris Winch, I would agree; great pilot and all-round good egg, sadly retired now I think.

The EU country flag carrier I used to fly for allowed for small (can't remember how it was defined) cats and dogs to fly as "pets in cabin" with their (presumably) owners. Cats were always in a pet carrier; occasionally so were dogs but we carried a fair few dogs who were simply on a lead. This was in European shorthaul.

Young Lady once bought her cat via Easy to Liverpool back in the early 00's, from I think Paris, when she arrived the sh*t hit the fan. Her (reasonably acceptable in my opinion) excuse was that she was used to doing this around Europe, and didn't think the UK would be the exception (strict quarantine rules) and they were quite happy to let her board with catty. Oh how she threw a tantrum. This was filmed I think and shown on BBC? as part of some Easy documentary series.

Erm, is "lockdown" starting to get to H 'n' H?
You don't need the dog, see i.e.
(sorry, only available in German, but a nice example of European BS). German NAA LBA goes Monty Python?

Thanks for the complement but not deserved. I might have retired commercially but still have a valid licence(after 58years!)

Yay, Welkyboy! Good to hear from you. Hope you and the other “Jersey Boys” are ok. Happy memories of flying with you all in the CJ and then a fine meal in the “Boathouse” afterwards.
Take care,
Eckhard

Doubt it was Easy.
Easyjet don't carry animals. Well, not the four legged variety, anyhoo.
(Guide dogs excepted)
