AVIOS

I've been doing a bit of jet setting for work recently so I have been behind with blogging, Thanks to everyone who has visited and left a comment, I will catch up soon.

I saw this sunset in the airport lounge on my last trip back home. 'AVIOS' by the way, is what British Airways have decided to rename their 'Air Miles'. I'm not quite sure why to be honest!

I think sunsets look sad from Airport lounges, SAVO...I have a few shots of them, too.

Brits are probably intending to have the Avios compete with the Euro.
SAVO: Yup Ray, definitely a bit sad. To be honest I rarely have shots in the airport because try as I always do, I always spend too much time in duty free and just about make it on the plane on time!
A great shot Savo. I don't know why Air Miles, need to be called Avios.
SAVO: Cheers Frances. I am not so sure why myself Lol!

This is a very good photo
SAVO: Thank you Vintage
The sunset light is really nice in this photo... especially the coloured shine on the tail and the heavenly rays.
SAVO: Glad you like it Jacquelyn!

A pleasing pic SAVO. Avios sounds like an everage "adios" to me. Very odd...
SAVO: Lol. I always like your observations Sir Chris!

Sky Miles by any other name, SAVO...just keep racking them up! Good for you. And I LOVE this airport shot, especially if you didn't miss your flight! smile
SAVO: Missing my flight is one of my worst nightmares so I can assure you even the love for a great photo would not make me stay longer than I should smile
Cheers Ginnie
They probably spent a fortune with some agency coming up with the name! Fine sunset with the light on the aircraft
SAVO: Haha, you are probably right there Bill. Cheers

When you have hundreds and thousands of avios, your family will grow to love you even more. Even family you have never heard of smile Great shot.
SAVO: That is a very true observation Louis smile Cheers

A glorious sunset; I like the rays especially. A good advert for Virgin.

Is the Aviois thing to do with the merger with Iberia, I wonder?
SAVO: Lol. I should ask Virgin to send me a cheque smile
I am not sure about the Iberia thing you know. Who knows, Avios, Airmiles,.....doesn't make a difference I guess!

Beautiful shot catching the suns rays, Savo. smile
SAVO: Cheers Linda!
A gorgeous sunset you've caught - and I like very much that you caught the airplane considering all your traveling!
SAVO: Thanks Elizabeth. The sunset lasted for about 3 minutes and then it was gone so I guess I was lucky to get a good shot smile
This is such a great combination SAVO... the sleek lines of the jet against a golden sky filled with sun rays... i like it... i like it a lot....petersmile
SAVO: Thank you so much Peter. Very Kind smile
Beautify shot Save! I especially love the clouds and the sun's rays!
Did you take this pic from inside the airport? :o
SAVO: Yup from the airport lounge. Thanks for dropping by smile
Lovely
