  • Ryanair to move Copenhagen-based aircraft after court ruling

    Ryanair will move its one Copenhagen-based aircraft out of the country following a court ruling that airport staff in the Danish capital had the right to refuse to service its flights, the Irish airline said on Friday. Europe's largest low-cost airline's policy of employing people in countries such as Denmark under the less generous terms of Ireland, rather than local rules, has incurred the anger of Danish labour unions. The unions demanded that Ryanair sign a Danish collective agreement with its locally-based pilots and cabin crew.

  • Honeymoon is over for Greek couple who went penniless in NYC

    Newlyweds Valasia Limnioti and Konstantinos Patronis' long-planned "dream trip" to the U.S. ended in New York City, where their three-week honeymoon quickly turned into a nightmare: Their Greek-issued credit and debit cards were suddenly declined and they were left penniless. The couple skipped a few meals before spending their last dollars on dinner at McDonald's. Strangers from two Greek Orthodox churches in the city's Queens borough came to the rescue, giving them survival cash until their flight home to Greece on Friday. In Greece, they generally pay in cash, which is preferred by businesses, but they were told to have cards for the U.S.

  • Wimbledon - BBC’s ‘disastrous’ new 'Wimbledon 2day' show comes under fire - fairly?

    Well, for a start it seems most tennis fans enjoyed the reliably straightforward previous format of ‘Today at Wimbledon’, hosted by John Inverdale, which simply sought to show working people highlights of the matches they missed through the day with room for expert analysis from the likes of John McEnroe. ‘We just want to watch some tennis after a long day at work’, was the consistent feedback from fans on social media, only that has now been re-worded in a much more negative manner after the seemingly unwelcome arrival of ‘Wimbledon 2day’. ‘Dumbed down’ and full of gimmicks, ‘Wimbledon 2day’ attempts to incorporate quirky skits and fan interaction with the chatty show played out in front of a live audience of fans who are made to stand in The Gatsby Club (one of Wimbledon’s hospitality suites) clutching drinks and trying to catch the camera’s eye over McEnroe’s shoulder.

    Greece's economic partners in the 19-country eurozone appear to be withstanding the escalation of the Greek debt crisis, with business activity rising to a four-year high in the second-quarter of the year, according to financial information company Markit. Its purchasing managers' index — a broad gauge of business activity — rose to 54.4 in June from 53.6 the previous month. Williamson says the combination of the stimulus program from the European Central Bank stimulus and low inflation appears to be boosting consumer and business spending, helping to offset 'Grexit' anxiety.
