Ba's First Class customers to enjoy British bubbly

British Airways have selected a British produced sparkling rose to serve to its First Class clients. The Hush Heath vineyard run by Richard Balfour-Lynn has beaten off  stiff competition from French vineyards such as Laurent Perrier and Veuve Clicquot.

 Commenting on the decision, Mr. Balfour-Lynn stated  "I'm absolutely thrilled about the decision by British Airways to stock Balfour Brut. It shows we can compete with the best."

Congratulations to Mr. Balfour-Lynn and congratulations to British Airways. Now, just to bag an upgrade to First Class to taste some or more likely, make a trip to Waitrose!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge travel (relatively) light on tour

It has been confirmed by St James's Palace that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will travel on their tour of Canada and the US with seven aides, half the number which normally accompany The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cambridge routinely travel with valet's, a doctor, an equerry and an artist to capture moments on such trips.
The move by the young married couple cut put strain on Charles to cut back on his aides.

Of the seven staff who will accompany The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, it is likely to include the Duchess's own hairdresser, along with close aides Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Chris Healey, Miguel Head, Patrick harrison and Sir David Manning.

Everyone here at Alihoco would like to wish them a successful trip to America.

Up to 40% of UK's biggest companies failing on carbon emissions law

The majority of targets set by the FTSE 100 companies have set for themselves are with goals for 2011 and 2013 with around one-fifth relating to goals in 2018 or later.
