This website gathers personal data under the following over-riding principles:

1. To ensure this website operates securely without interruption for the benefit of our readers and to take reasonable precautions to protect both us and our readers against potential nefarious activity by third parties.

What specific personal data we collect and why we collect it


This website uses cookies.

This allows us to understand how readers find our website, where our readers are based by geographic region, what devices and operating systems our readers use to read our articles, and how readers navigate our website.

This data is gathered using Google Analytics. It is provided to us on an non-personally identifiable aggregated basis. It is not combined with any other personal data.


With effect from Saturday 17 October 2020, this website is carrying out a trial of accepting advertisements. This is administered on our behalf by WordPress which hosts this website and complies with EU GDPR. No specific user data is shared with London Air Travel.

E-mail Subscription Lists

If you choose to receive notifications of new articles by e-mail, we will retain your e-mail address. You can choose to unsubscribe at any time by following a link at the foot of any e-mail. If you subscribe your e-mail address will automatically be deleted from our mailing list.

We will never share your e-mail address, nor any information that may be inferred from it (such as your name or employer), with any other party.


If you leave a comment on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also your IP address and browser user agent string to help protect this website against spam or other nefarious activity.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

When posting comments on this website, we strongly advise that you exercise caution and do not post personal data such as booking reference numbers and frequent flyer account numbers. This is highly sensitive personal data, and should be treated as such. If you choose to post this data you may expose yourself to fraud or other nefarious activity for which we cannot accept any liability. We also strongly recommend that you do not post precise details of your booked travel plans such as exact departure dates and flight numbers.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you have visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your personal data with any other party. We may choose to share non-personally identifiable aggregated data, such as total monthly visitor numbers and percentage of readers by geographic region, with interested third parties.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

If you choose to subscribe to this website by e-mail, your e-mail address will be maintained for the period of your subscription. It will be deleted automatically if you unsubscribe.

What rights you have over your data

If you subscribe this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

How we protect your personal data

This website uses a reputable third party subscription security service to protect this website and your data against malicious activity, such as unauthorised logins, “brute force” attacks and malware. This service also provides recovery assistance should these events occur.

Where we send your data

As our website uses service providers outside the European Economic Area, you data may be stored or accessed by oragnisations operating outside the European Economic Area. These service providers have signed up to EU-US Privacy Shield which governs the legitimate transfer of data between the European Union and the United States.
