  1. SAILING UPDATES: 2017 Latest News

    Ais now shows she's off to Roscoff shortly, arriving at noon. The reason for the very brief return to Le Havre remains a mystery for now!
  2. SAILING UPDATES: 2017 Latest News

    Armorique due in Roscoff tomorrow, but has sailed from Cherbourg bound for Le Havre - no service alterations shown on BF website. ???
  3. St Malo Dockers’ Strike

    Thats just not fair to BF!
  4. St Malo Dockers’ Strike

    If BF and Condor suspended their St Malo routes for a period, the dockers would be laid off?
  5. St Malo Dockers’ Strike

    So the majority elect a leader/government based on their policies and intentions, then some try to thwart it? Sounds like Scargill vs Thatcher part 2!!
  6. St Malo Dockers’ Strike

    Errr, gentlemen please - I sincerely hope the issues at St Malo are not related or comparable to those at Sports Direct, which arose from the use of subcontract (mainly EU migrant) labour controlled by gang-masters - probably even involving modern day slavery practices! Common knowledge locally.
  7. Complaint handling _BF

    I see where you are coming from Fine Whine - Many people are not dog lovers (including me!) - it seemed to me that the story about the troublesome door to the dog toilet and the associated 'complaint' did rather go on a bit. In hindsight that doesn't actually matter, we can talk about almost anything on here, so sincere apologies to any member offended by my comments.
  8. Complaint handling _BF

    There seems to be two stories running on this: 1 Complaints - never made a formal complaint, so can't really comment. However I have seen BF staff being very tolerant with some very rude/impatient clients! 2 Pet Owners - From my viewpoint a very noisy minority who expect 'special treatment' and facilities to the annoyance of others. I bet there's a lot of people who would be happy not to share their crossing with other peoples dogs!
  9. BF Refits 2017-18

    AIS shows Etretat coming out of dock (at last!)
  10. I have in the past recovered the cost on just one return crossing!
  11. SAILING UPDATES: 2017 Latest News

    A question - when ships which are chartered and have major maintenance/refit/improvements carried out, is some of the cost taken by the owner? I'm thinking of Etretat in particular at present where just by the extended time at the shipyard in Gdansk, someones costs must have spiralled! Hoping its not BF that have to pick up all the bill. (And the cost of potential lost revenue and cost due to the ship being laid up)
  12. SAILING UPDATES: 2017 Latest News

    Etretat appears to be back in dry dock!
