  • Morning Whit

    With COPD I can't fly either so I have UK breaks with a firm called Daish's. They pick me up about a mile down the road (Dudley) and take me a couple of hundred miles or so to Newquay. 5 days, 4 nights half board £159 including the coach in October. As you say, it can be a bit dodgy healthwise so I always take out the insurance. Good luck this year Whit.


  • haven't heard of them .i will look them up see if they go from my area (Darlington) I use national holidays. i also take insurance out ,last time i flew I ended up in hospital in Italy I wasn`t insured for our complaint , so it cost me£3500

  • I've not heard of this - I know of fit-to-fly test - what is the criteria for flying ? Love your positive responses to things :)

  • i had a pneumo thorax about four years ago, so with lungs only iffy i was advised not to fly because of air pressure on the plane ,apparently the air pressure inside the cabin is set at 8000feet which is no good if your lungs are rubbish ( that's what they told me)
