I've only actually vomited once on a flight (while in a holding pattern over New York in a violent storm), which is probably about 0.1% of the flights I've taken. But I've felt sick about a dozen...

I have noticed that too.

Cost of a return ticket from London to Geneva in economy: 88.
Cost of a return ticket in economy, upgraded to Club Europe using BA Miles: 473 + 18,000 Miles!

Why not just go to Easyjet's website and check there?

I just found out in less than a minute that you can book with Maestro, for which there is a fee of 3.95.

Probably not. But the person filming that landing would have disobeyed the cabin crew's instructions to turn off all electronic devices once the aircraft had begun its descent. Where does it end?...
